Review United States Air Force Academy
Upon graduation you will have a guaranteed job as an Air Force officer earning good money with a good amount of say in what career field you'd like to be in. If you want to become an Air Force pilot this is the place to be. Unless you are at the very bottom of your class you are very likely to get a pilot slot if you want it! When you leave the Air Force your degree from the Air Force Academy and your experience as an Air Force officer will be worth a lot to employers, especially in the aviation and defense industries.
There's plenty of rooming for cadets here. Definitely larger than normal college dorms, if not the same size. Generally each room has two beds with drawers underneath, two closets with overhead storage, a desk, some chairs, and a sink/valet combo. There's only two halls; Vandenberg (Squads 1-23) and Sijan (24-40). So it depends on which basic squadron you enter that determines which hall. Vandenberg is better; has easy access to everything on base, ranging from Fairchild (classes), the cadet store, a laundromat, volleyball court, gym, and post office. However, you need Verizon in Vandenberg to get good service and AT&T for Sijan. Completely free to live on base.
This school isn't for everyone; seriously. You cannot overlook any part of this school when applying, to include academics, athletics, and military aptitude. The school allows for opportunities you won't find anywhere else, but they must be earned.
