Hey guys! I was wondering what else I could do to boost my chances of making it into the Air Force Academy. In 8th grade: I was President of my Student Government Association, National Junior Honor Society, and Vice President of the Key Club. I was also running track, in Relay for Life (A Cancer thing,) I tutored Math, Morning Announcer, Yearbook Club, In orchestra (since 5th grade,) student ambassador lego robotics, and a lot more. My cumulative GPA for middle school (since 6th grade,) is a 3.9 (I got one B in middle school).
Now I'm in 9th Grade, and I'm in my school's SGA, I'm a student ambassador, I have pretty much all Honors Classes. I'm Class President, and I'm in my school's AFJROTC Program. In the program, I'm only an Airman Basic, but I will soon be promoted, I am also on my school's Drill Team. In the spring, I plan on playing softball.
Idk if this will hinder my chances of making it in, but at my school we have these college-level classes called STIs. and In middle school, we apply for it, and I made it in, that's why I go to this school. It counts as college credit and everything. I made it into the Criminal Justice Program. There are many things to choose from like Engineering, Criminal Justice, Culinary Arts, Health Occu., Biotech, Cosmo, Electronical Constructions, Automotive Tech, and a bunch of other ones. I was one of the 20 people selected, (Anyone in the whole County can apply) and I have a fountain of community service hours. I've been dreaming about becoming an Law Enforcement Safety Officer ever since I was little, and I can't wait to apply! It's my dream job. Is this good enough?
