well, i think this is a more "real" approach that will produce a much more "real" result than going through the ERAU site. ok, so im in. i got accpeted to embry-riddle, paid the deposit, did the housing and financial aid and im prety much set to go.[so im not really interested in hearing unique spiels on peoples negative experiences with ERAU and how i shouldnt go.] however, can someone please explain to me what a freshman, with no flight time, can expect? im somewhat nervous and i just want to have enough knowledge before i head in. I really want to be a pilot but my family never thought of the idea of sending me to a local FBO and getting lessons. so im in this predicament and would gladly accept any advice.
