An amazing school...little freedom though. But, it has amazing opportunities with no cost. Post graduation, you will be debt free and ready to start your assigned job.
The United States Air Force Academy is a great academic and military institution. It is truly a place to learn and grow. Importantly, you get what you put into it.
Usafa is an amazing campus with exemplary people as well. Everyone is friendly, courteous, dedicated, and eager to learn. Usafa is the place to be if you want to challenge yourself and serve your country.

I have visited the Air Force Academy several times, and I have a few family members that went there. I have a very high overall opinion of the school.
I loved the discipline that was taught to all of the cadets. The cadets all having some sort of leadership position definitely prepares them for the real world once they commission in the Air Force.
When I applied here I thought it'd be a crazy challenge but you could get through it with the support of your fellow cadets. Freshman year was a crazy experience and it was more or less what I expected. As a sophomore / junior it has been extremely lack luster. Everyone gets 5-6 hours of sleep, there isn't much camaraderie, and people just stay in their rooms all day because you have so much homework to do. There isn't nearly as much true military training or opportunities to improve leadership and social skills because it's just hazing the freshmen and doing hours of homework / going to the gym to prepare for fitness tests.

Great place for a rigorous academic experience, and a great place to be from, but there is so much cynicism and negativity it's a pretty horrible place to be at.
The Academy was incredibly challenging but worth it. I learned so much about myself during my time there and came out with no debt and a job.
Pretty average, feels like high school
Vandy is better than Sijanistan
This place is full of back-stabbers.
Every cadet is guaranteed a job after graduation. The job may not be what you wanted originally, but the career opportunities both in and out of the military are way above average compared to other schools.
Some people love this school and others can't stand it, it really depends on the individual. The opportunities are amazing, and the chance to serve your country is as well.
IDs are required to enter the immediate campus area. Assaults are a problem on the campus. Maybe not as much as other schools, but it is still a problem here, especially outside of the immediate area and in the dorms. The school does a lot to prevent sexual assaults and works with the victims well.
Intramurals are required for all cadets one round per semester. Football is the biggest sport on campus, and they play well. It is also required to attend all football home games. The athletic facilities are amazing, all games and gyms are free and have pretty much everything you could want. Working out is a big part of the school culture.
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.
We're on a military base so safety is not an issue at all. Safety and all this stuff is of no issue at all
We all get a job whether you like it or not, and the degree is looked at positively by employers

All professors actually teach and care. They are very available for one on one tutoring
The sports teams are good and the facilities are too, but there's often a lack of support at games/events. A lot of this is due to only having 4000 students and us being busy all the time though. We're all forced to go to football games, which are generally fun, but making them mandatory kills the enthusiasm
This place really changes you for the better. My family all say I act a lot more mature since coming here. You have to deal with a lot of crap you don't want to here, but in the end it's worth it (or so I've heard)
