I’ve been accepted to both USAFA and USMA. I have the difficult decision of deciding which one I will go to. This question is based on academy experience. (I know that the academy experience is a small part of what you actually go for...which is the career choice but I’m stuck because I can see myself doing a few careers in army AND Air Force). Anyways, USAFA has been said to be easier, relaxed, and “fun.” While USMA is more rigorous and is said to be the most “military.” I think USAFA would be great and it’s been my dream since I was young. It probably WOULD be more “fun”; however, being accepted to USMA and doing research has torn me. I love the strictness of West Point and the prestige. I almost feel as if any other academy would just be trying to replicate the intense “soldier” part of the military while West Point is said to do it so much better. To be honest, I kind of want more strict rules and something that makes other Academy-goers grimace. (KEEP IN MIND I am not going for the prestige or anything. I have wanted to serve my country and known I was going to do so since I was very young. I know what the academies entail and I am more than up to the challenge. This has been my goal and the final destination is being an officer to lead others. With that being said...back to Academy experience.)This is all inter-branch banter but I want to hear your opinion. If you had a second choice, (I am not sure whether the Army or Air Force has always been your dream so you may be very biased) which Academy would you choose based off of experience? And explain to me a bit, why you chose to go to the academy you did or are currently attending. Thank you in advance.
