As many of you know my dream is to become an officer in the United States Military. Over 9 months ago I started the process of applying to the United States Naval Academy, Air Force Academy, Coast Guard Academy and United States Military Academy at West Point.
I had the honor of attending the Naval Academy Summer Seminar and have been invited back to the USNA on an Official Candidate Visit in October.
This afternoon I came home and recieved a letter and email from the Air Force Academy.
Inviting me to the Air Force Academy for 4 days in October. I was honored for the invitation, but was shocked when I read the email (see below), they are paying all expenses to visit the Air Force Academy.
I was one of 30 chosen for this event and that is an honor considering last year there was over 9706 applicants to USAF academy.
Again, I am honored to have been chosen and need to let them know if I am attending by Tuesday.
I say this with hesitation just because I have already planned on missing school for 3 days in October to attend the Naval Academy and with this visit I would miss another 4 days of school.
This is quite of bit of missed school when you have AP Calculus and Chemistry.
If I can work it out with my teachers and make sure I stay current with my work. I will definitely go visit the Air Force Academy.
Any advice is welcome.
