Hello... hoping for some input for my son. He has an appointment to USAFA after many, many years of preparation. I have stalked this forum for years and provided guidance along the way. He also has a Type 1 AFROTC scholarship. (yes, an enviable position to be in). For years, USAFA was the only school he would even consider, but now he is second guessing. Hoping for some input... my son is more academic than an athlete, and is fairly serious most of the time. He is not the type to have a lot of friends but earns the respect of his peers even if they aren't his best friends. He is a marathon runner and is in great shape, but he is not a jock by any means, and not interested in sports. He knows there will be mandatory sports and football games... that's not really the issue. He's questioning the culture of USAFA - can a more academic personality excel and be happy there? My take is that USAFA saw something in him - they knew he wasn't a varsity athlete (3 yrs xctry but not varsity or state) and yet he still received an appointment. We always said that if he didn't, then it wasn't meant to be because perhaps his personality wasn't suited. But, now he did - struggling with if it's meant to be. Other options are RPI or Missouri Science and Tech (and a few others that have mostly fallen out of consideration) FWIW, he wants to be an aerospace major and does not want to fly - more interested in space command. I'd appreciate some opinions. Thanks.
