I recently just received a full-ride scholarship to University of Illinois that's not through the military. I'm still in the running for a NROTC scholarship, but haven't heard back yet. If I were to be declined from NROTC or just choose to take this scholarship instead, is there an Officer Candidate School or something I can go to after college? I doubt I'll do the college program if I don't receive the NROTC scholarship. My goal is to still be a Naval Officer; I'm just wondering if there is a way for me to get there without having to go in enlisted after school.
