well as a former high schooler (graduated last month
) ive been looking at the AFROTC after i got through with my air force enlistment. (starting
august 10th im so excited) had to get that outta the way.
i can get you some pretty good information.
academically, you have it in the bag. i think the min is a 2.7 GPA and a 24 on the act.
although the physical requierment ill have to look up and get back to you.
in my own humble opinion, i believe that prior enlisted officers are better than the ones right out of the Academy or ROTC. if i were you id enlist
first, that way when you do get your comission youll still e a 2nd Lt., but you get more money than the rest of the officers. and not to mention being
an NCO will give you leadership training that no college or AFROTC course could give you. and youll know what your subordinates are going through so
you could help them, and earn their respect.
also, youll only get the schloarship if you're majoring in what the AF needs at the time. and get ready to wait. they used to take cadets 3 times a
year, but now they are only taking thme once per year.
there is also a service commitment. pilots i believe its 10years, navigators is 5 years and i dunno how long everything else is.
and,denpending what your major is,(AF will classify it as technical or non technical) that will also determine what kinda schloarship you get.
they have 4,3,and 2 year programs avaiable. U2U if you wanna know more on that and to find out what detachments the schools your looking to atend
sorry so allover the place, getting ready to call it a night here.
hope this helps, and if you need something cleared up just U2U me.
