a piece of a paper with a question mark on it would be the only application package you need to send them.

depends on what way you plan on commissioning.
Academy.....very hard to get into
ROTC......very hard to get into
OTS......Very Hard....I know, I just got accepted.
it's cyclic....when i commissoined, they accepted anyone who met the basic physical/academic requirements. it's gotten much harder recently with all the cutbacks. i'm sure in a few years it will cycle back to being fairly easy to join.
right now, its next to impossible.
They're cutting us officers left and right
give it 5-10 years
you got the blue to green option though
Unless you join Infantry or something similar, don't bother joining, we don't need any more idiots.
I'm a first yea ROTC cadet and I think we only have three or four going in this year. The cadre tells my class to not worry about it though, they say we'll be going in at a better time in 2010.
Extremely hard. Every AF commissioning source has cut back on their mission sets, especially ROTC. Further more, every ROTC had at least 1 pilot, and 1 nav slot - this has been eliminated. Basically it's a tough road and highly competitive. But once you make it in, AF officer training is easy.
OTS will only be commissioning 500 a year for the forseebale future. Thank goodness im one of the 500 for FY07
ROTC isn't very hard to get into at all. you just add the classes onto your schedule. getting a commission through it is the hard part.
My neighbor just completed OTS. It is very hard. /thread.
tell me what is the point of rotc if you dont get a commission? thus it is hard to gain a commision from rotc
you can also try and get commissioned in the guard or reserve
a little info from the OP would be easier to get a clear picture
degree already or currently in school
job you want
you can be signed up as a 'special status' student --- just take it as a elective.
so in other words NO REASON AT ALL
Right now the Air Force is only accepting technical degrees like engineering etc.
Dont post if you dont know what your talking about
elective credit hours
Depends on what you're degree will be. Underwater Basket Weaving, you're in automatically. Anything else, it'll be up to a board.
I took military history classes in college with out rotc or even knowing about rotc and had a lot of rotc guys in my classes, just for my own info, do they give credits for drill and such?
