A Colorado Springs Gazette investigation reveals that the United States Air Force Academy "let's in an increasing number of students who don't meet its academic minimums even as it rejects thousands of applicants who do. The largest share of waivers goes to to recruited athletes. A confidential Air Force report says waivered cadets are less likely to graduate, become pilots, move into critical high-tech jobs and rise to the service's top echelons. The report concluded the academy is 'losing its competitive edge.'"
