I searched the web for the "USAFA Writing Sample" and found some reoccurring information that I thought was valid. I wanted to share it with the prospective class of 2022, especially those of you would like to get a head start on the essay since the application is still not open. I am not completely sure if this information is accurate, but it's a start. ** I have found conflicting information about the third prompt, in some years it's optional prompt that allows candidates to explain any weak areas in their application.** Choose 1 or 2, and 3. 1. When did you first become interested in the Air Force Academy and serving in the Air Force? What started your interest? What Air Force career field do you hope to enter? What do you expect to gain from the Air Force Academy experience and how will it help you in your Air Force career? (250 to 300 words, 3000 characters max) 2. Which aspect of the Air Force Academy experience (academic, military training, athletic, social/spiritual) do you anticipate will be most challenging for you? Discuss why and how you expect to succeed in that area. (250 to 300 words, 3000 characters max) 3. Describe a setback or ethical dilemma that you have faced. How did you resolve it? How did the outcome affect you? If something similar happens in the future, how would you react? (400 to 500 words, 3000 characters max). VP Nomination Prompt: Why do you want to attend one of the military service academies? (3500 CHARACTER MAXIMUM) * Post Scriptum: I was hoping we could help each with our essays in a google doc or something. IDK what I should expect; here's to trying.
