Book Rant #15: Free College

I realize that in the US, college is very rarely free. But the military academies are - you pay off your tuition debt by agreeing to serve in the appropriate service for at least four years after your graduation. Now, sure, not everyone would know this. But, if your character lives in Annapolis and has a dad who works as a professor there, I'm figuring this would be fairly common knowledge. Especially if you dad is pressuring you to attend. My parents offered me a car if I went anywhere where my tuition was free - one way or another. (I did not. I know. What was I thinking?)
