United States Service Academy Admissions

Selecting for Success at the Air Force Academy and as an Officer

Book Description

This report examines admission standards at the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) and officer outcomes to evaluate whether the USAFA admissions formula should be adjusted. USAFA admissions are partly determined based on scores calculated as a weighted combination of three elements: academic composite, leadership composite, and selection panel score. The data included records on the nearly 35,000 cadets who attended USAFA from 1980 to 2011.
