    This is an excellent school from what I've heard, however, also extremely rigorous and difficult. You'll get the experience of a lifetime but you'll have to pay your cost for it. It's worth it to do it and you'll benefit in the long term as long as you're willing to push yourself to the highest degree.

    The Air Force Academy is a place that challenges you in all aspects of life. Everything you do here is important and has meaning. You will find who you are and what you represent after going through the four vigorous years here.

    This school is not for everyone, however it is definitely worth it. There is a lot of commitment when it comes to joining this academy; you lose more time with friends and family than a student at a normal college, and the academics are quite tough because they are more science based. Overall, a lot of memories are made at this school and although the everyday stresses can get you down sometimes, it is a full scholarship that offers you a full time job when you get out.

    The Air force Academy provides a way for all of their cadets to achieve a startling amount of experience, memories and relationships that will carry them through their lives successfully and entirely. Through it's constant demand for physical, character and academic vigor, it manages to shape young men and women into becoming the future of our nation and the leaders of our modern day military.

    The Air Force Academy is the best place to go to if you want to become a pilot and of the best places to go if you want to serve the United States. However, the Academy is an extremely rigorous college and is not for people looking for regular university. Do not come here if you want to be lazy, party all the time, or just try it out.

    High quality staff and facilities, as well as extracurricular opportunities. The staff are very willing to work with cadets to help them succeed, sometimes staying, or returning to work, at late hours. Emphasis on academics ensure ample time free of military duties to study every night.

    At USAFA, you will be given opportunities that no other college student will ever have, all the while defending the United States. However, you will be pushed far beyond your limits. Come only if you truly want to be here.
