well early is relative. i went to a presentation for the VTCC and found out that though they say there are 200 scholarships, there are 250, and last year they didn't give them all out. LOL.ive already accepted admission to tech because they offered 12K in scholarship to sign early.
you won't feel like an idiot.i just dont want to feel like an idiot when, after im locked in to VT in june, the academy randomly calls up and says theyve got a spot for me.
that still doesnt really matter...since either way the deadline is still may 1st, scholarship or not. And yes i ABSOLUTELY will do AFROTC there.well early is relative. i went to a presentation for the VTCC and found out that though they say there are 200 scholarships, there are 250, and last year they didn't give them all out.

I haven't heard this exact story before, but I have heard from a Colonel who taught at the Academy that they really push the flight option for Academy cadets, but they're not as bad about it as they used to be.hornetguy
i heard a story that worried me. maybe since youre there you can confirm it. i was told about a USAFA cadet who was fully FC1 medically qualified but did not apply for a rated slot. he didnt want to fly. then the word got around and he had to go speak personally with the superintendant or the com of cadets (not sure which one) to explain why he didnt want to be a pilot. the USAFA leadership apparently did not want to give up any of their allotted slots to ROTC cadets.
i have no idea if its a true story, but ive heard it twice from different people. i thinks thats pretty bad considering that could potentially destroy an ROTC cadet's dream/hard work of being a pilot. is it really that hard to find someone at USAFA who does NOT want to fly?
