Well here is an unexpected twist. DS didn't get USNA or a MO NROTC scholarship, but still is committed to doing MO NROTC where ever he goes. Of the schools he has been admitted to (everywhere but USNA), he has A Wealth of Choices: Humongous State Universities (Texas A&M, University of Washington Seattle, University of Maryland College Park) v. Small Liberal Arts SMC Schools (VMI, Citadel, Norwich). I understand the legal pluses of SMC colleges and certainly, the general differences between a humongous U and a small Liberal Arts school are profound and self apparent (eg., class size, individualized attention). But is there any difference that this assembled body of wise folks can identify in terms of doing MO NROTC? Is it just a matter of money? Is one a Chevy and another a BMW for MO NROTC? I would be particularly interested in any perspectives and comments on MO NROTC at the University of Maryland -- that is in state for us. They don't do it on campus, you have to travel to DC at GW University. Of course we also got the out of state tuition waiver at Texas A&M and the two schools are roughly on par with each other academically -- both very highly thought of. Thanks.
