    Choosing a Major for obtaining a slot and a successful pilot career?

    Alright here's my situation. Ive been a F-16 crew chief in the ANG for about four years and have dreamed of being a fighter pilot since high school. I will have about 60 college credit hours after this semester. My original plan was to get a Bs in mechanical engineering, because I was behind on my math my graduating date wont be until May 2015. So what I am contemplating is possibly changing majors to aerospace security. The benefits would be a closer graduating date and a higher GPA. I would LOVE to be a pilot and as much as I want to be an engineer, pilot is #1. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    P.S. I plan on obtaining a pilot slot through the ANG base that I have been enlisted.

    Have you talked to the leadership at your unit about it?

    Technically, the AF prefers hard science or engineering types, but I don't know what effect, if any, that has on selection. There are plenty of non-techie degree holding pilots out there.
