since the gov't seems to be pretty slow in paying tuition, is going to school on an ROTC scholarship seen as a negative these days? My son got a scholarship in this cycle . He has not yet gotten into the college and has a lot of plusses and a lot of minuses with regards to admission. My first thought was for him to let admissions know that he received the scholarship thinking that may positively influence their decision if he was on the fence. However, before he/we begin that process I would like some opinion on whether this is even a positive or not?
