    suggestions please!!

    I am getting ready to enter my second year at a college. I am double majoring in Professional Pilot and Aerospace Administration. I have no doubt in my mind that I want a future in the military and have never second guessed it. I like college and will keep with it but I was wondering if there was any other ways that I could school (military academy or something) I have been trying to do some research and I just cant find any answers to this. Do I need a degree in Aviation or can I join a military branch right now and get the flight training that I need?

    You need to be commissioned as an officer and get a pilot slot.  To be commissioned, you will need to go through a service academy, ROTC at a civilian or private military college, or OTS after graduation. 

    In the AF, about 40 percent of pilot slots go to the academy, 40 percent to AFROTC, and the remainder to OTS (so I am told).

    The AF likes technical/science degrees, but it is NOT a requirement.
