    The link was very informative, I never realized how few scholarships there were.

    Gotta do the math....

    CL1VE:

    Yup 274 Eastern Region and 284 Western.... There are 6 Marine Corps Recruiting Districts - 3 East, 3 West... Divide 274/3 = 91.33 per Eastern District...Within 1st District there are 8 sub-stations, so 91.33/8 = 11.42 scholarships per sub-station. That meant that NJ got 11 scholarships.

    If you can, try for a Cadet/Midshipmen school. Could serve you better when in OCS. You won't be as stressed by the "Mickey Mouse" stuff. Maine Maritime has a great program, they are Midshipmen and they have Marine billets available. Yes, it is Maine, but it's a small school focused on sea-going stuff. Give it a look if VMI, Norwich, etc... are closed off due to Quota. Penn is a huge school and if your the type of young man I think you are, you might want a "tighter knit" college experience. Just my two cents. Check-out their website at www.mma.edu

    Semper Fi,
    Bob McMahon

    ditto on BobMcMahon's thoughts on checking out the Maritime Academies!
    Based on the list he posted I see that SUNY Maritime (Ft Schuyler, Bronx under the Throgs Neck Bridge- directly across the sound from Kings Point ) also has Marine ROTC scholarships still available and it also has rolling admissions so you are not too late there either.

    Good luck!

    Thanks Bob

    I think i mioght have worried more had I known all this Background info. Im intrigued by the small number of nationwide USMC-ROTC entrants. We have received a phone call that S has been selected as one of them at his #1 school. Blessings abound. Now for an official piece of paper which says "Congrats, now show up at 0600 on August 9th..."

    More later.
