    I'm a current cadet at USAFA and a former AFROTC cadet. I did one year of AFROTC before going to USAFA. If anyone has any questions about the differences between the two or transition from one to the other, feel free to ask.

    Does the freshman year at a civilian college feel like a waste of time or is it helpful for the level of academics at AFA?
    Does being a year older than most of the other doolies isolate you at all, or are you all brothers coming out of BCT?
    Did you get in on an ROTC nomination or a congressional nomination? What was the process for the ROTC nomination?
    I'm assuming you're headed for the same major that you were at your civilian college. Are you having to retake any classes for that major?

    Thank you for your post by the way, ROTC and then reapplying is my Plan B, and there isn't much information out there about that particular route.

    Not going to speak for FlyHigh, but i doubt he is anywhere close to be one of the older cadets. There are plenty of cadets who didnt make it in the first time they applied. That doesnt even include those who came had originally enlisted and wound up going to the Academy
