Hi my son has completed his Army ROTC scholarship application. Quick question - he has listed Mizzou (home state) and 6 other out of state public schools. With 1-2 exceptiond most of his schools are in his academic range. Is there any advantage or disadvantage to deleting one public school and adding a private school? Example - Valparaiso and Baylor offer his Engineering curriculum but are very expensive obviously. However I would imagine they would be expensive for anyone including in state students since it is private. My son is a solid student 3.6 unweighted 30 superscore ACT Eagle Scout Marching Band no sports letters. He seems to be competitive academically with the Valpo and Baylor student bodies. It seems like these two on a cost basis would not be much different from out of state public schools (OK State for example). Is there any reason not to add a private school and delete an out of statecpublic school?
