Well, I believe it or not I was given a Falcon Foundation Scholarship! (After being turned down by both USNA and USAFA this was quite the pick me up.) This is unusual because I have NO sports whatsoever. (My USAFA guidance counseler realized how much I wanted to attend USAFA and she really did a phenomenal job helping me out). So my questions are: 1. The scholarship says they give out 5000 dollar increments, if I choose an institution like Northwestern, how much will I have to pay? (Even an estimate in the thousands would be helpful.) Since my parents won't be able to chip in, this is really somthing I need to know. 2. Which Institution should I go to? I really have no preferance, so if anyone one would happen to know which one is the cheapest???. (Not to seem cheap or anything ) Third, if I attend a USAFA prep school and do well, will this help my USNA 2014 chances at all? I have to send USAFA my acceptance if I can take the scholarship ASAP, so if anyone has any info, please let me know. Thanks a MILLION, and although my journey to the academies is delayed, it is very much alive!
