    I received a Falcon Scholarship earlier this year through some rather unique circumstances, and I just checked my page at USAFA and i saw this:

    Your Status: Candidate*

    Appointment Status: Falcon At Northwstrn (accepted)


    I am going to Northwestern, but I'm wondering exactly what that "(accepted)" means. Are they saying that I'm accepted to NWP? (Ive known that for a while). Or are they saying as long as i don't screw up, I should get an appointment to USAFA next year? I know as a falcon i have a good chance at an appointment. I was just curious to see how other people interpret this.

    Big congrats to all the NWP and other preps too. As many have said, that is like a golden ticket for you. NEVER QUIT! :)

    Is NWP one of the schools that you attend for a semester then finish out the year at the school of your choice? Our doc's son did that I think; and had his 2nd sem at Central Fla. GIGANTIC SCHOOL.
