I'm a junior in highschool this year, brand new to this forum, and I've got a couple questions about the NROTC and NROTC-MO scholarships. I'm still not sure which option I'm most interested in. From what I understand from the Marine recruiter, you can choose any major, however engineering, math, and science majors are preferable. I'd like to major in broadcasting, so I'm definitely not on the preferred list. I'm assuming if your stats are high enough though that doesn't really matter. However, the Navy recruiter made it seem like I wasn't really a candidate for the NROTC scholarship, and to be honest, he wasn't very polite or informative. I have a 3.9 GPA, Top 5% of my class, and I've been active in FBLA, Beta, FCCLA, and NHS since Freshman year. I've taken the ACT once with a composite score of 26 (the Navy recruiter said I need a combined English and Math score of 49, mines 48). My AFQT score is 86. I'm still not sure which schools I'm looking at, but U of Missouri is definitely an option. I guess what I'm asking is what do I need to get to in order to be able to pick a nonpreferred major and receive the scholarship? Also, I feel like this recruiter isn't really willing to help me get where I want to be. How do I deal with this?
