My son is going to be a college freshman in the fall. He has been offered a 4 year Army ROTC scholarship. He applied for a NROTC scholarship, but was not offered one. The Navy is his 1st choice. At this point, he is seriously considering joining the NROTC program at his school as a college programmer with the hope of earning a 3 year scholarship. Money-wise, we can afford to pay for some of his college. I am wondering how difficult it is to earn a NROTC scholarship as a college programmer. I am sure he will be competing with others with the same intention. I would really appreciate any insight on this. Thank you for your help!!!
