Dear forum, I received a letter from AFROTC this morning confirming that I received a Class-1 AFROTC scholarship in aeronautical engineering - yay! ...but having participated in USAFA Summer Seminar 2010, I feel that no other colleges/universities come even close to the amazingness of what the Academy offers. Then I had a thought: from research and sleuthing on the internet, I discovered that roughly 2000 out of 10,000 or so applicants recieve AFROTC Scholarships, where a mere 5% recieve a full, non-capped 4-year scholarship. In addition, at the very bottom of the online application for USAFA, the fine print reads as follows: PRIVACY STATEMENT AUTHORITY: 10 USC 9346 AND EO 9397. PURPOSE: To select appointees to the USAF Academy and other Air Force accession programs. RELEASE AUTHORIZATION: Submission of the requested information constitutes authorization to release it to appropriate Members of Congress/The Falcon Foundation/Air Force Academy Preparatory School/Air Force ROTC and other Air Force accession programs. DISCLOSURE IS VOLUNTARY: Failure to provide information could preclude appointment. Social Security Number is used for positive identification. ...which I interpreted to mean that all of the forms and information that I submitted to USAFA could have been (and perhaps has been) used when taking into consideration for my application for ROTC. My question, therefore, is will having received an AFROTC Scholarship help me in any way in receiving an appointment from USAFA?
