    Received the TWE this morning along with a few of you :thumbdown:I emailed my counselor at USAFA, she told me it was a "long shot" to be considered for Falcon/Prep appointments because there are very few left to offer. For those that have received either of these in past years, what were your stats? Trying to keep my head up for other opportunities but my counselor did not sound confident.

    don't forget about self prep! Many of the prep schools, if not all of them, allow you to go without a scholarship. Most of my classmates at NWP were NOT on scholarship and many of them are at services academies now. feel free to pm me with questions

    DD was motivated (!) to attend USAFA. She decided to make her own way to NWP and be a free-agent. After making this commitment, she was offered a Falcon Foundation slot.
    That may not happen to you, but it is a scenario that exists.
    In her year of effort, she vastly improved her ACT scores and padded the SATs a bit higher.
    Good luck with the decision.

    I also received a TWE and I emailed my counselor and he also said that I have a "long shot" of receiving prep school/falcon.
