    Another Highschool fighter pilot hopeful

    im very analytical and practical and going to make this straight forward..

    Right now i am-
        a sophmore in highschool
        about a 2.8 gpa
        all honors classes and soon AP
        play JV and Varsity Laccrosse and soccer( will be both Varsity next 2 years)
        am an eagle scout  
        Working on Private pilots license
        do clubs like robotics and took all i could of CAD and Tech classes
        Am busy 24/7 and my grades show it...
        Play guitar and used to be in band
        Snowboard and have alot of fun
        I think i seem pretty well rounded, but i guess thats not for me to decide.
         anyways, i didnt decide to become serious about being a fighter pilot until about halfway through this year, about the time i decided to try in school...  So as you can see i screwed up my first 2 years of school, although its still all honors classes im starting to think no one cares.  I realize I can work my ass off my last 2 years and try to come up with a 3.3 GPA or soemhting like that and still have next to no chance at the air force academy... so  want to know what the best way to go to become a fighter pilot is with the highest rates of getting a position for flight school.

    i plan on going into either Aerospace or Aeronautical engineering in college...
    im in great shape, and have 20/20 vision as of now... but I decided worrying about my vision going bad is the least of my problems.

    Was looking at the W.P.I. AFROTC program as well

    Please Advise. thanks

    USAFA admissions will look kindly on a upward trend in grades.  If you can keep your future grades to the 3.5-4.0 range, you would probably have a pretty good shot.

    AFROTC would also look kindly on an upward GPA trend. 

    Your EC's look good.
