    Do prior enlisted start on the same day, July 19th?

    Congratulations on your graduation! I have a question, do you apply to the USAFA Prep school? or are you selected if you do not get an appointment to the Academy? Thanks

    America Works: I believe we had ~50 show up and graduated ~45. Probably 15-20 direct entries joined us for I-day at the academy and historically priors have around a 50% attrition rate (we’re doing really good for now- only have lost 2 that I know of, 6 months into doolie year)

    Minty iced tea: priors show up a couple days before the rest of the incoming preppies in order to do in-processing since we are technically still active duty at the prep school and it is treated as a PCS.

    Lynn114: you cannot apply directly to the prep school. Everyone fills out the application for USAFA and then admissions picks those they want to send to the prep school (mostly athletes, also priors that are young enough to spend the year in prep school, and a few others that fit into ‘diversity’ categories)

    Felt I should revitalize this thread since I know appointments are starting to come out and class of 2019 preppies will be here sooner than we know it!

    Is the application to the Prep School for USAFA a different application to the Academy alone?? How do they determine the Prep School Candidates/Appointees what qualifications are different from USAFA Appointees? Thanks in Advance

    JakobF, see my reply to Lynn114 right above your post. There is no application to the prep school. You appply to USAFA and may be picked up to go to the prep school instead- it’s all up to USAFA admissions, they make the call on prep offers

    Enlisted airmen applying through the LEAD program can apply directly to the Prep School. They are the only group that I know of that have that option.
