The crap talk of join now, than get paid and than become an officer only happens in 2% of the case. Nobody does it.
I got burned, and left Air Force. So, this is you from the future, telling you to suck it up and finish college, and become an Officer! College sucks, but just take a day at the time, an semester at the time, and you WILL make it.
You can thank me 5 ys from now Mr Leautenent.
I guess I'm part of that 2%...
You just have to be self-motivated. No one is going to hold your hand and take you to college when you're enlisted. If you're not motivated about college now, you might not be when you're enlisted. If you quit going to college now, and join the AF you might get comfortable and not fulfill your dreams of being an O. -- So make sure that you have the motivation before you make the decision.
You do have a lot of options. It depends where you are at in your schooling. The AF is getting its numbers down to its allotted amount (which means there are incentives for some to get out of the service). But depending on when you graduate, the AF could be short on personnel and begging for people. It's all about timing. Right now, OTS is really competitive, so is getting into the AF Academy. ROTC might be an "easier" way to get in.
PM me if you have any questions, I could talk about this a while...
