    So I received back in Oct/Nov a 3yr AD AROTC scholarship and a 4yr NROTC scholarship.

    Both were selected at USC (University of Southern California).

    At the time when I spoke to the PMS and the Naval instructor (PNS?) they both said that they would recommend me for the scholarship (which worked, I got it) and that they also could help with my admission to the school itself.

    Does the fact that I will not need financial aide and that the government will be paying for much of my education aide my admissions file? Does the PMS or PNS have the admission's director's ear, per say?

    I am merely wondering, because if I in fact do not get admitted to USC, what is the likelihood of transferring an AROTC or NROTC scholarship to another school that:
    1.) I have already gotten into
    2.) Costs about HALF as much as USC
    3.) But... the major is "Construction Science," not Mech E (what I put for NROTC).

    Is it very difficult to transfer the scholarship? Easier because I'd be going to a cheaper school? What do you guys think?

    Thx,
    Hfy600 :confused:

    I have a similar question about the likelihood of transfering into Iowa State.

    Does their unit normally fill up (out-of-state)?

    Any stats about this year?

    Thanks
