I just received my TWE in the mail. I knew my odds were against me because of my GPA so I kind of mentally prepared myself for it ahead of time. With the disappointment of not receiving an appointment aside, I now have a very hard decision to make. I am determined to reapply next year and hopefully get an appointment. I already have back ups in order but I cannot decide which one is best. I have been accepted to Mizzou and Missouri S&T which both offer AFROTC. I also have been accepted to NWPrep so if I dont receive a Falcon Foundation Scholarship, I can self prep there. I also am being recruited to play soccer at Roosevelt University in Chicago, IL. Only problem is they don't offer ROTC. I would really like to play a year of college soccer if possible. I have the possibility of walking on to the Missouri S&T team. I am unsure of which route will put me in the best position to receive an appointment next year. I was hoping someone could tell how the academy views intercollegiate athletics and what you think the best option would be in your opinion. I know no one can tell me a way to guarantee an appointment, I just appreciate the advice. Thanks in advance.
