So I applied to USAFA last year and was not appointed. I will be attending a SMC this year on a AFROTC scholarship but want to re-apply to USAFA. I would like advice on the best way to take on the application a second time. Like what is the best way to try and get an ROTC nomination? When should I open my application? I want to be able to write my essays with a little bit of a new perspective but I feel that will be harder to do if I open my application now. Any advice at all on re-applying would be helpful. Thank you.
