    Well, I believe it or not I was given a Falcon Foundation Scholarship! :biggrin: (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 :shake:)

    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!

    I would assume not, since you almost automatically get into usafa after a year at the prep school.

    NWPS is the cheapest (only 1 semester though), followed closely by Marion...I believe. This is all in the letter which was sent to you.

    My question is how many Falcon Foundation Letters are sent out? I know that only 100 are given out-first come first serve...so how fast are all of these given out?
