So currently I'm on the waiting list. I have been accepted to several schools, some of which have AFROTC, but I missed the AFROTC deadline for scholarships. My main question is how are second year applications looked at differently? Does the academy mix in your college grades with high school grades and then just review your same application from last year? I know that I should probably join some more athletic groups and continue to have active leadership and service but since I am a qualified candidate this year, having met all of the academy's requirements, do I basically have a good shot at getting in next year just for the sheer fact that it will be my second time applying? Also what are the key benefits of a USAFA education vs. ROTC? Thanks, this is a tough time for me and I am just trying to figure out what I can be doing to set myself up for success.
