    DS was offered the FF scholarship, but in the end declined. He has a full 4 year ride at Alabama in honors college where he will get his masters along side his bachelors...and of course will be ROTC. However....he has never recieved his TWE. Still listed as a canidate. He scored a 31 on the ACT so even his AOL was suprised by the FF scholarship. Not sure what to think now...

    Any thoughts?

    I think he's on the short list and could possibly still hear about an appointment before I-day. I've mentioned before that a classmate of my DD got his appointment just a week before I-day. (yes, I know there's no wait list but obviously they don't let everyone know at the same time.)

    As for the FF, I honestly believe that some of those go to candidates who are well qualified but run into the "not enough spots" scenario. That happened to another friend of DD.

    Similar situation for my DS. He has declined FF for appointment, but has not received twe. That would be a very interesting development.
