Does anyone have any recent information regarding NROTC side load scholarships? Have read here that they were few and far between in past years. Our son is currently a college programmer (completed one semester) hoping for a side load (and his parents would fall in that category as well!). Any advice to pass on to him to better his chances? He did one year at a community college and just completed one semester at a 4-yr college. He nearly maxed out his PRT score and did very well in his NAV101 class. He's a tier 1 major, but his first semester away, his GPA suffered a bit. Will they consider his community college grades as well?
