Can anyone offer any guidance/insight about making the decision to attend a service academy or not? I went on the appointee tour a couple weeks ago and also visited campus this summer. I have spent a lot of time reading different posts on this forum and I just want to make the best decision for my future. I can't sit here and say "yes there is zero doubt in my mind that I want to be an officer in the military". And I think that is very hard to do for any 18 year old and especially one that does not have a military background within his/her family. However, I can absolutely see myself loving the academy and developing a passion for becoming an officer in the Air Force. I just don't know that yet because I have not lived that lifestyle. Anyone have any advice? If you need to know anything more about my personality or motivations please feel free to ask. Thanks.
