After briefly reading some other threads, I am afraid we are way behind the power curve.... DS is a senior this year......in JROTC (Army,) on the Raider Team (is co-captain,) and plans on doing soccer in the spring. ACT composite was 21 and his unweighted GPA is 89.9 (he's not a test taker, unfortunately.) He is a great student, self motivated, in shape, and pretty straight edge as kids go. (Like most all of you on here!) He recently visited UNG and wants to attend the cadet program. He is planning on applying for the Army ROTC scholarship, but I am decently sure he won't even come close to getting one. He just doesn't look as good on paper as so many others who are worried about this. I am a single mom and his father isn't helpful. He's had to follow me through so many moves since my divorce..... He has ALWAYS wanted to join the Army, and up until the divorce he was a military brat. His father is a retired E7. I'm also afraid we've waited too long to apply. He's just now applying to the school, pending getting the duel enrollment class credits figured out. I desperately want him to attend this school and do this program because that's what he wants for himself.....to join the Active Army as an Officer. But I am worried about how to pay for it all....I don't think he would qualify for Pell, but FAFSA doesn't open until January so I don't know. Also don't think pell covers room and board, but not sure. Any tips?
