Hello my name is Kirk, I am a 15 year old male currently attending a highschool in Florida as a freshman. My dream since elementary school has been to attend the Air Force Academy. I can't believe that I'm within a few yea of applying. I would like anyones comments on my chances of getting in and any advice on what else I could do to increase my chances. Well here's everything you have to know about me.

I'm a freshman and have seven classes a day. One of those class is an honors. I am currently taking English 1, Biology 1, Geometry Honors, Spanish 2, Ancient Middle Eastern History, Health/Weight Training, and Symphonic Band (Highest possible band class available at my school.) my first quarter grades were descent, and came out to be a 3.75 GPA. I'm hopfully going to do better than that this quarter and hoping to get A's on my Exams. I am catholic and have been confirmed. I am currently a leader for the confirmation 1 class at my parish that we have every Sunday night. Over Christmas break, I am hopefully joint Civil Air Patrol. I made the vasity fall baseball team at my school and am now awaiting tryouts for the spring. I will hopefully make vasity but I will definately make JV. I am a well rounded student with decent grades and am well liked. I will most likely try to run for student office to show the academy I have leadership skills.

Please answer the following questions for me.
Will I get into the USAFA?
What else should I do to increase my chances?
Should I do mission trips with my school for community service?
What good community service is there? Next year should I take English honors, Algebra 2 honors, and whatever science is next year honors? I will also most likely be dropping the band class next year to take a computer class or should I not do that?
Thank you so much to eeryone who has read the and I look forward to reading all of your comments and advice.
P.S. I recently signed up for the USAFA Pre-Junior Program.

Strange... People usually jump on these posts like flys on sierra. Go look at past posts, if no one responds.

They're probably tired of answering the same question over and over.

Kirk - Select Access Forum and do a search for Air Force Academy in the Future F-16 Crew section and you'll find several previous threads on the subject.

Yes I know I've read them. But I would like responses on my situation and on whether "I" would get in not someone else.
