    I thought this would be interesting to see who got in where.

    I got into: University of South Florida
    University of Central Florida
    and Embry-Riddle (Daytona Campus)

    I did get rejected from University of Florida which I think is very strange.

    (UND isn't very competitive, but I liked it, so I didn't have any back ups)

    Son is up late working on Physics IA so I'll add in his acceptances:

    USAFA
    Virginia Military Institute
    Virginia Tech (Corps of Cadets and Engineering School)

    Waitlisted at University of Virginia (sigh - over 22K applicants this year)
    No news yet from USNA

    USAFA was first choice and also first school he heard back from

    J.NordicSkier: my eldest son is hoping to go to UND for grad school - of course, he has to pay for it himself, with no hope of a dime from his parents! It's a nice campus, if a little off the beaten path. Great space and aviation programs too.

    Did all of you decide on AFA or are some of you still making up your minds?

    I got into USAFA before i really applied anywhere else. but i did end up applying to Valparaiso University in Indiana just in case. Didn't get as much scholarship money as i thought, however, which surprised me. USAFA was definitely the number one choice.

    USNA

    The Ohio State University
    University of Texas at Austin
    Texas A&M
    Miami University (Ohio)
    University of Utah

    Besides the USNA and AFA, UT was the only school that I wasn't entirely confident I would be admitted to. All the others were safe bets.

    In response to fencersmother, the choice comes down to Navy and AF. While I will likely still go AFA, I was impressed by USNA, so I won't be making a final decision until after orientation. I will also keep OSU in reserve on the off chance I break my leg between now and June.
