    I was offered an appointment to VMI and I'm excited about starting my cadetship there. I'll be transferring in as a sophomore and I'd appreciate your insight: 1) does a non-tech major have any prayer of getting an AFROTC scholarship? 2) Does transferring in put you at a disadvantage? 3) How do you "stand out" (for the right reasons) in the det?

    Thanks again!

    Congratulations on your appointment. My son is a 4th Class Cadet at VMI, he is AROTC so I don't know about AFROTC but I would imagine show up ready to max your PT test, get good grades, take advantage of leadership opportunities. I believe you will still go through the Ratline with 2017+3 just as any incoming Rat.

    I do not think transferring would put you at a disadvantage.

    Best of luck!!
