I was accepted to the Air Force Academy this past week upon receiving my waiver. I'm still holding out for the Naval Academy (my original first choice). Now that I have the AFA Appointment in my hands, I have sat back on the fence again. Here's my story... My ultimate goal is to become a military intelligence officer. Both services offer excellent opportunities in the area, but, correct me if I'm wrong, I believe the Air Force Academy has a more direct path to that career. Also, I would much rather fly planes than drive a ship. Then again, I really wanted to be a Navy Seal to begin with, so the planes vs. ships is a different topic. Do the Navy Seals and Air Force Special Ops offer the same experience? Clandestine mission, down and dirty sort of thing? What are the chance of special ops assignments at both academies? Should I weigh my decision heavily on what I would do if I don't get the special ops? I'm sure there are numerous similarities between each academy, but I have never looked at the Air Force as closely as the Navy. Should more technology savvy people attend the Air Force Academy over the Navy? It's been a long road and if the Air Force fits me just as well as the Navy, I'd love to accept my appointment and begin my preparations immediately. Thank you for all the advice!
