This forum is absolutely priceless! Thank you all for your help!!! I have yet another question (I am one of those people who likes to be prepared for everything, plan well, and start early and I've been working constantly since 8th grade to prepare myself the best I can for the academy) So that was my explanation for having so many questions! I truly value your advice! I applied to the USAFA Summer Seminar when it opened on Dec 1, and have not yet recieved any further info from them. My status on the website is "applicant (your application is under consideration)". I know that I must be patient! Here's my question: I have heard that I will be having an interview, what should I be prepared for? I am extremely comfortable in interviews (i had them for applying to high school and job interviews) but is there anything sort of "different" that I should be ready for? Also, I am sure I will be asked why i want to attend the academy. Most importantly, I feel that I have a duty to serve my country and want to be a part of something greater than myself. (Does this sound too "cheesey", it is the honest truth) *note: i come from a mildly mildly military family (my parents are not military but I have uncles on both sides who are/were, so i have not been raised with the idea of going into the military, though my parents are very supportive) ok that was really long! hahaha, but I really would appreciate your help!
