Hello, (skip to last paragraph for shortened version) Having received a near perfect SAT and strait As in AP classes, I had always hoped of attending a top college. I realized that I needed a full scholarship to attend one of these, and I found the ROTC scholarship. I was never the athletic type, but I figured "what the hell" and sent off an application to ROTC. Turns out they liked me, since I was almost immediately given an ISR scholarship. And I got into Stanford!! Coming from Arizona, it was a bit of a culture shock to suddenly be up north, far from home, surrounded by genii, and being in a military bootcamp (I'm not the physical/athletic/aggressive type!). On the first day of orientation, after experiencing waking up at 4:30AM and working all through the day until 10PM, and getting yelled at constantly by drill sergeants, and being the smallest/slowest/weakest/worst midshipman in the unit, I decided that I didn't care about anything and just wanted to go home and attend a state school. Now upon reflecting on the whole situation, I think it was just high-school-senior-goes-away-to-college-wanting-to-go-home homesickness. It wasn't that I didn't like the ROTC program, but I was just having troubles adapting to all the changes, like most college freshmen. Long story short, a few months or so ago I gave up my scholarship and transferred to a state school. I got 45 credits from AP that Stanford wouldn't give me, so I guess it is not that bad of a deal. However, I am beginning to regret this. Kids here clearly don't care, yet they all think they're going to be orthopedic surgeons. I can't stand being around baselessly arrogant little toads. At Stanford, everyone was truly intelligent, so the atmosphere was one of intellectual stimulation, not trying (and failing) to show off. Anyways, my question boils down to this: Is there any possibility to go back to the ROTC unit at Stanford/Berkeley/UCLA with the scholarship after having dropped out? I did leave on good terms, for what that's worth. Also, I did voluntarily drop out, I was never approached and told to leave (in fact, it was quite the opposite). Thoughts? Thanks so much.
