    Any chance of me becoming a pilot?

    Well i am 17 and considering being a fighter pilot, as one of the few things i would very much like to do along with astronaut,a government spook, or an astrophysicist. Sadly my grades are not the best, i believe it will be in the 3.0+ range though. Along with being a Junior at the high school i am also dually enrolled at the local community college in which my grades are by far better. even though my grades are not the best i do take accelerated/ap classes in both the math and science fields. i do not do any extra cariculars. I am above average intelligence not to toot my own horn but i believe that it is relevant. My plan is to either go to the state schools or continue with the community college and aqcuire my transfer degree with a 3.8+ and then transfer to the University of Colorado Boulder where i will get a degree in physics. is it possible for me to become a fighter pilot after this? If not what are the best ways that i would be able to? Also i plan on taking a course at the community college to learn to fly small planes next year.

    Yes, look into AFROTC and AF OTS.  ROTC is done during college, and OTS can be done after graduating college.  The better your grades, more athletics and leadership experience you have, the better your chances.
