I recently had a conversation with an acquaintance. I got the feeling that their DS was gaming the AFROTC system. From my understanding, their DS has a 4 year AFROTC scholarship for engineering. He is now in his sophomore year. He is not doing well with his engineering classes. He would like to change majors, but that would mean losing his scholarship and having to pay back his tuition. So instead, his family is hoping he doesn't get picked up for SFT (I think that is what it is called). That way he loses his scholarship but doesn't have to pay it back and can change majors. I get the feeling that he is performing poorly in ROTC on purpose. I guess I'm wondering if I'm reading this situation correctly and does this happen often. The more that I think about it, the more it angers me. I read so many posts from people on this forum that truly want to serve their country and are in need of these scholarships, and he seems to be gaming the system. BTW, this student is at a Public University with a fairly low tuition in general.
