    Hello, since my junior year in high school I knew Norwich University was a good fit for me. I applied for the Naval ROTC scholarship but did not receive one, so I'm attending Norwich in the fall with the hopes of a contract. To be honest I just want to be an officer whither it is in the Navy or the Army. I scored a 94 on my ASVAB so the CT National Guard is all over me to join. They can offer my $4,500 my first year and are willing to "bet their career" on the fact that I will get contracted at Norwich in the Spring.
    -Is the drive from VT to CT every month worth the money towards tuition?
    -Will joining the reserves really help me get contracted at Norwich?
    -Can it actually make it harder? Because I'll be running around doing extra things with less time to focus on school and grades
    Thanks!:confused:

    My son has been fortunate in the fact that we live in Md but he goes to college in Ga and is in Ga Army Natl Guard. When he is at home in Md when he has had drill he has been allowed to drill in Md instead of Ga. Possibly you can do that too, meaning drill in the state where you are physically located at the time of the drill ie. school Vt or home in Ct.

    DanLupo, you may want to repost this on the ROTC forum as you may get a better response.
