Hello! I am currently a candidate for USAFA- however, my test scores (32 CR, 23 M, 26 W, 26 S: 550M, 570 CR, 560 W) are holding me back. I retook my SAT and am still waiting to hear back about the scores- but it is very late in the process. I self-applied to Northwestern Prep and it seems like a really good fit as a plan B. If I do not hear back from USAFA, that will most likely be where I end up. However, I am curious about a few things. 1. What is the daily life like? Do you make close friends? Do the guys/girls get along? 2. Can you take your own laptop/phone? Is there decent service? (I live in VA... So I would be across the country) 3. Was it beneficial to go through the program or do you feel you would've been fine at a normal university? I am curious about the daily life/schedule. I have many options in place if USAFA is not in the books this year, even though I plan on reapplying. I am very interested in NWP, however, I would like to know more! Thank you!
