Currently one of the many with "candidate" still written on the USAFA application after a TWE back in March. Set up plan B of doing ROTC (not on a scholarship) in college, but still really have my heart set on going to a prep school. I've been told that it is possible to go to a service academy prep school without a scholarship, but I just have a couple questions... -How much does going to SA prep increase a person's chances? -Is it still possible to apply this late in the game? -What prep schools schools are there & what are the locations? -If anyone has attended... how was your experience? -What other expenses do you have besides room/board, books & tuition? -If I have received scholarships through different organizations, will I be able to use them towards prep school tuition? (meaning: would they accept them?) -Are the classes at the SA prep schools college credit/transferable? Thank you very much to anyone who takes the time to reply to this. Any advice is appreciated!
