I was beyond pleased when my daughter was awarded a Type 7 scholarship this year, even though she was really disappointed that it was not a Type 2. After seeing how few scholarships are given I feel even luckier. She (and our family) will be deciding in the next few weeks whether to apply the Type 7 to our state school or defer to a Type 2 at a school that is roughly 3x the cost of the state university. Her intended major is Aerospace Engineering or Mechanical Engineering w/Aerospace option. Does any one have experience deferring the first year? If she meets the first year ROTC requirements, GPA, etc., is there any chance that the AF will come back and say, "sorry, more budget cuts and we won't be able to honor the scholarship"?
