It certainly forces someone to make a commitment to enroll in college immediately after high school in order to receive the free tuition. It sounds like I would have been eligible, but I would have been classified as a traditional student.

Hopefully as time passes they will be able to expand the program to include those that did not fit the "traditional student" classification. There are plenty of students that take off a year between high school and college. I've found that those people learned as much being outside a school structure than those who remained in it as traditional students.
