What are the key differences? I don't have to pay tuition at my local university since my parents work there. So I don't think I will even bother with the scholarship as I would like to go to my state university, and my chances of scholarship are slim. My question: What are the key differences? Is it just money? Do non-scholarship cadets still have gear and uniforms? Can they still go on field trips? Please list any differences you know of.
