Then how do they decide (in the old days at least) who ended up in TAC, SAC, ADC, and AMC (Now they have different command set-ups which I forgot, I know there's ACC, AMC... but I don't know if there's anything else)?

I would assume nobody on the top would have ever picked ADC, SAC, MAC, over TAC (the olde commands), huh?

When I went through UPT, everyone in the class was ranked by using academic and flying scores. The highest person was number one and the lowest person was at the end of the list. On assignment night, the top guy got his choice and as the list got smaller and smaller the choices dwindled. Finally, the last guy got the one remaining aircraft.
