Hey guys, I've been checking these forums for a few months but decided to register today. My name is Chris and I'm a senior in high school on Long Island. I've applied for an AFROTC scholarship (which has really been riding on my lately since the last release date just passed and I haven't received any news) and I'm hoping to attend Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida. I've already been accepted there, and they offered a $7000 a year scholarship, but because of costs that particular college hinges on the ROTC scholarship and anything I may get from Civil Air Patrol or other sources (ROTC being the biggest one). I'm looking forward to being an officer in the Air Force and I've had my sights on being a pilot for as long as I can remember (other choices being Nav and ABM). Everything so far has been pretty smooth but this scholarship is the next hurdle to overcome. Obviously I hope to get something, but I'm determined to become an officer in the military regardless.
