    If one goes to any ROTC branch without a scholarship or has yet to contract(i.e the "trying it on for size" reason), are they limited in any of the functions?

    I don't believe so. But for the Army, once you become a junior, you have to contract.

    Not at all. The only difference is that contracted cadets get paid

    If you are a non-scholarship student in NROTC, you do not participate in the summer cruise activities after the freshman and sophomore years. If you do end up on contract at the beginning of your junior year, you will participate in the summer cruise the following summer.

    If you are not contracted in Army ROTC you may still participate in FTX's, PT and other battalion activities. It is a good idea to do so because it can help you decide if the Army is right for you.
    As far as Army training, such as Airborne school or Air Assault school - I don't think that is available if you aren't contracted.
