Why do people fail the academy, do they not study enough? Or is it like an art form, you either have it or you don't? Is it through lack of effort? Lack of time to learn? Poor memory? Poor reflexes? Etc.? I tried to search around on the forums and couldn't really find an answer. I recently received a TOL and have a high paying job with a family to support and while I would much rather pursue ATC, since my job is extremely dull (Accountant), I am wondering if it's worth me taking the risk of going to OKC. This is a career that I really want to pursue and will give it my all but I genuinely wonder if I have what it takes to get through the program.
