Went to check out a college Well this spring break i went to check out Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and i was very impressed. the best thing about it, is that my GPA is really higher than it is. Since i go to a private jewish school I a) have extra pointless classes and b) since its a private school the education is weighed more. so he said i would probably get in, even though my current GPA is a 2.7 - also, we talked to some students, who help out, and they said they dont really care about the SATs, i mean, they care, but they dont weight the SATs alot when it comes to their deciding factor. anyways, its, as the counselor said: "The Yale of Aeronautics" - which is pretty cool. I'd also probably go into the AF-ROTC (Air Force ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corp.)) To help with scholarship - i dont mind, because when i'd getin to the AF i'd be a 2nd Lieutenant (thanks to ROTC). It'd be pretty cool, i wouldnt be a pilot or anything, but i even considered going into the AF even without the ROTC, but the ROTC seems like a better choice. one really cool thing, about getting an ROTC Scholarship, is that Embry Riddle will also throw in money. If you get any ROTC scholarhip, Embry automatically throws in 15k$ - for all 4 years - which is a help, but not too much (even though you I would need all the scholarships i can (that is, assuming i didnt get a FULL ROTC scholarship, which i dont think i will). total tuition is about 30k$ a year - including food, housing and whatnot. so yeah, good stuff there. After seeing this small campus, thinking about a large University is pretty crazy - i cant imagine going to school to a school as big as one. Im only a Jr in HS BTW - so i still have time to think about this stuff --- kinda pointless post - but i had to, it was really cool to check it out.
