Hi! So I am currently a sophomore in high school and looking towards joining the Air Force. This was mostly influenced by my dad and late grandpa who were both in the Air Force and also hearing about the benefits was interesting. But I was talking to my school councilor and he was telling me about the Academy and doing Air Force ROTC at a traditional college. Now, I am very unfamiliar with the military but it is something I would like to become involved in. I understand that the Academy is very prestigious and I've tried to do as much research on it as I can, and it is definitely one of my dream colleges, but I also would like to get a traditional college experience and cheer. From my understanding, the Academy only has a co-ed and dance team. I love stunting and not so much dancing so I wouldn't be able to cheer, since I am a secondary base. Anyways, I have read some similar articles like this one, but those are older and I would like some input from those who have done either. Thank you so much!
