Hello I am currently in 8th grade. At this point I am set on what I want to do, which is join the United States military specifically the Air Force to be a pilot. A couple months back I was looking into potential commissioning sources into the Air Force. I was going to go with AFROTC until I looked at the USAFA and all of its benefits and what it offers. So at this point my main goal is to get into the USAFA, now I know it is very challenging and since I am going to be a freshmen in a couple of months I really want to lay a strong foundation so that I can get accepted into the USAFA. If you have the time could you please provide me with some tips on what I should in my freshmen year. I plan on playing sports and doing volunteer work, is there anything I should do. If you could give me some advice it would be much appreciated.
