My son did not receive an appointment. We are carefully considering his next steps forward as he now works towards earning appontment into the Class of 2017. The options as we see them are: The University of Central Florida, with ROTC and engineering course load - practically free with current arrangements. One of the military academy prep schools like New Mexico Military Institute - no current scholarship money, but it might be possible to find some. Our question is which would provide the highest possibility of appointment?
