    I am in the process of applying for an NROTC Marine Option Scholarship and I was wondering how much the cost of the schools I am applying to affects whether or not I receive the scholarship.

    For example: I will be applying to George Washington University which is the third most expensive school in the country. Should I avoid putting it as my first choice?

    Thanks.

    If you think you can get in, and you want to go there....put it down. My son got his first pick, Notre Dame, and we were stunned. If they move on down the list, let that be their decision. Go for what you really want! You might just get it!!!:smile:

    Each unit has a quota. NROTC already knows how much they are going to be paying in tuition per unit. Put what you want as number one. If you are awarded the scholarship they are just going to go down the list of schools to see what's available and if you fit based on your package. GW is my number two, btw.

    One caution: Put the school you want to attend but if you put a "reach" school and don't get in, you have to apply to transfer to another school then wait to see if the scholarship will transfer. It can be very stressful and you can actually end up without a scholarship if you don't get transferred to a school where you were accepted. Good luck! My DS is a Mid at GW.
