West Point or USAFA?
I know that this question has been asked many times before, but after researching both schools, I felt as if I needed more input. I am an athlete and am being recruited by both the Air Force Academy and West Point (and the Naval Academy, though I have thought about it and do not see much of a future in the Navy for myself, and they do not have the major I want.) I plan on majoring in Civil Engineering and both schools have outstanding engineering programs. When I first started looking into the service academies, I had my sights set on West Point. However, now that I have talked to the coaches from both schools, I am very stuck between USAFA and USMA. I am going on an official visit to USAFA in a few weeks and a visit to USMA soon after. I know that these visits may change my views but does anyone have any input, suggestions, or personal opinions that I could consider right now? Anything would help! Thanks5 replies
