"the way it works most of the time is if you are a civilian, you normally get a FF scholarship. If you are prior enlisted or a sports recruit, you get usafa prep. I know there are SOME exceptions to this but for the most part that is how it works. I received a FF scholarship for next year and will be attending Marion"
Yes, there are SOME exceptions...my son is neither a prior enlisted nor a sports recruit. So it is possible to be considered for the prep school based on other factors.
