Becoming an astronaut is the ambition of many of the applicants at Embry-Riddle, as well as many other smart young people today. The Embry-Riddle Aerospace Engineering program is rated best in the country in its category. Of the 144 Air Force detachments in the country Embry-Riddle was recently rated number one. They produce more officers for the Air Force than any other university except the Air Force Academy. Embry-Riddle also has the best success rate in undergraduate pilot training.

Good grades could get an Air Force scholarship, yielding two skills - an aerospace engineer and a pilot and a guaranteed job. Maybe even become an astronaut, commanding a space vehicle, financed mostly on the government!
