I am a bit confused and am hoping for some clarification from someone in the know. Understanding that DD is under a full scholarship at the USCGA when she arrives, I was also under the impression that some local scholarships which she may receive here at her high school might be able to be applied to her account at the academy. I asked DD to contact her admissions counselor in this regard, and she was told "no outside scholarships". But the following is directly from the Academy's website: "Q: Does the Coast Guard Academy accept scholarships? A: Yes, we do. However, there are some exceptions. If you have been offered an appointment and have questions about applying your scholarships, please contact your Admissions Officer. " What's up?
