If someone goes to a college on an NROTC scholarship, applies to USNA during freshman year and gets a nomination and appointment, what happens? NROTC scholarships come with a commitment to serve and so does USNA. Are there any bumps in the road in this process? I'm pretty uninformed when it comes to NROTC stuff. DS just found out about it and wants to pursue it in case he doesn't receive an appointment this year.
