My DS received a tier I scholarship back in Nov. We just returned from a Q&A at his detachment and they mentioned that service selection is mostly weighted on GPA. Seems to me that students in more challenging majors like tier I are not rewarded by this method being that it is typically more difficult then other majors in tier II and III . Wondering if those of you with experience know much about changing majors and tiers. What is is process like and any suggestions on ways to go about it? My DS is not planning on doing that at this time but if he is struggling it may need to be considered in order to protect his GPA and not ruin his chances of getting a service selection he desires. Trying to be proactive and preparing for worse case scenario. Also I was concerned to hear that over 50% of those who begin the program freshman year tend to drop out. The sophomore class started with around 35 and now has about 15+/- and 12 of those are on scholarships. Does this seem typical? Not sure what to make of this data. The unit is small- less than 100 total with the most in freshman class and the numbers are between 15-22 for sophomore yr on. We were all mpressed with the detachment- seems like it is well run with lots of resources for the mids... Can't figure out why such a large attrition. Any guesses?
