        Would this be a acceptable degree?

          Yes. Any four-year degree will do, even Underwater Basketweaving.

            "When choosing your degree program, keep in mind that the Air Force prefers "scientific" degrees, such as aerospace engineering, physics, computer science, chemestry, etc. You will also need to have a high college GPA, generally 3.4 or above, to be competitive."

            and...

            "Candidates with civilian flight training, such as a private pilot's license, also tend to fair better with the selection board than those with no flying experience, at all."

            From what I've been told however, is once you get too many hours you learn "bad habits" that the Air Force doesn't like, but I wasn't really given any examples. Most colleges have ROTC programs that you can join and will guide you along if you want to pursue that route.

                Sure, if that's what interests you. And as mentioned, any sort of flight experience would be helpful.

                  Better go for Master of Janitorial Arts with a hovercraft rating. Can't go wrong there.

                    As I was an instructor pilot in ENJJPT for a couple of years I can say that prior experience in flying really does not make a big difference in most cases.

                        You know, Asmir, this is hardly classified information.
