Steve,

I attended Northwestern Prep in Mound during 78-79. Due to personal family matters back in Florida, I had to leave in February 1979. It would be nice to establish a line of communication with someone from my class. If you could send me a private message, it would be the spark to ignite what is going to be one of the most consequential years of our time, 2021. Many thanks, Robin

I definitely wouldn’t count out AFROTC. If you choose to attend the university, you might really enjoy it there and the relationships you build. A lot of people that I know of who plan on reapplying end up sticking at that university because of how great it ends up being. + reapplying to USAFA would put you back a year In an achieving your true plan A goal.

My daughter received the Falcon Foundation in 2019 and attended NWP. She is now in her first year at the Air Force Academy and doing very well. Prior to accepting the Falcon Foundation scholarship as her Plan B she was going to attend Virginia Tech as an ROTC cadet. My two cents though if you are not a Falcon Foundation and have received an ROTC offer to really consider going that route and possibly reapply the following year if you are still interested. When she was at NWP there was some free agents who did get appointments but there were some who did not. All of the Falcon Foundation Scholar did receive an appointment.

@AFBoyMom Do you know when your DS submitted his application?
My DS submitted an application for Summer Seminar. He was declined for that program; however, his summer seminar application carried over into the candidate application - so he was one of the first. His application deadline, application year Class of 2024, was November 1st. He then was notified that he received an appointment to the USAFA Prep School on January 10th 2020. Recalling he process... I think the bulk of the prep school appointments seemingly were offered in March, April and May... that is when we began to see an influx of requests to join the parent FB page. :)
