I've been worrying myself to death over what would happen if I don't get an appointment next year, so I just had a few questions. I'm going to be applying for ROTC scholarships, but I'm rather certain that if I don't get an appointment I'm going to go straight to Northwestern Prep or somewhere similar. At this point in my life I can't imagine going through the ROTC program of a Civilian college with 40,000 students. If I were to receive an ROTC scholarship, what would happen to it? Say I receive a scholarship and go to NWP, would I have to reapply the next year if I still didn't get into the Academy? I just feel like the Academy is the only place for me, where I've come to the point where it isn't just an option anymore. I'm doing everything I can in terms of preparing for the physical assessment, Texas boys state, starting CAP, etc. but I never feel like it's enough.
