My son is in 8th grade and interested in Navy ROTC. I'm a 88 USNA grad who knows little about the ROTC process. My son is a good student and a good athlete but not great. We live in Northern VA and from what I've heard UVA is out of the question and even Va Tech is a stretch with a 3.8. So now I'm thinking about out of state... maybe Penn St or UNC. How competitive are the scholarships? Does he have to be in the top 5% of his class? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
