Hello all, Before I start, I know that this is a decision that only I can make. That being said, any input would be nice. I am in a very good situation, and I want to make the best and most informed choice. I applied for an Army ROTC scholarship and was awarded one this past March. Before applying for the Army, I also applied for the Navy ROTC scholarship. I did not hear back from the Navy until April 30, when I was awarded a four year scholarship. In the mean time, I sort of warmed to Army (my original plan B) and went to my college for a visit day and got to know the cadre and a few cadets. To be quite honest, I was extraordinarily surprised to get Navy. I am a tier 3 major and did not expect to get this scholarship. Navy was my original plan A, but I almost "counted it out." Do I got ahead and accept Navy, even being not sure? Both scholarships are to my #1 school, University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign). With all this in mind, could I please get some input from current parents of students or students in either please? How do summer training opportunities compare? What is life like within each brach? Life after (N?)ROTC? Thank you. This is not a "woe is me" thread. I want to make the right decision for me, and I know there are so many people on here who can help me do that. Thank you so much. I appreciate it more than you know.
