    This will be a very difficult decision he loves both USCGA and USAFA. His plan is engineering. At USAFA it would be Astronautical and at USCGA would be Mechanical. He also runs the 400 meters and is thinking about the competition aspect. Right now it’s 50/50. He plans to call the USCGA and speak with someone about long-term engineering jobs and graduate schools programs. He would love to pursue a Ph D.

    The bottom line he wants to serve his country and both programs are very honorable.
