    If you attend a college but do not get awarded a ROTC scholarship, I know you can enroll in ROTC without a scholarship and then apply for an in college scholarship for the remaining years. How about if you just go to the college but dont enroll in ROTC and then apply for an ROTC scholarship for the remaining years? Is there any difference or have an effect on your application?

    based on what I heard/learned, it's the local ROTC officers' decision who gets the on campus scholarship. So, if you were the officer making the decision, who do you think will get the scholarship? The kid who has been working his/her tail off as a non-scholarship member of your battalion and demonstrating his/her dedication and determination or the kid who has not done any of this?

    Of course, I could be wrong: if there is anybody who went through this, that advise would be far more valuable than mine.

    The total 4-year scholarship and the college program scholarship are two separate entities and are reviewed differently by separate boards. You can not apply for the 4-year scholarship if you have OVER 30 college credits.
