I am currently a freshman in college and as of right now I am on the NWL, however due to the small amount of people expected to be accepted from the NWL I am assuming or at least preparing for next year as far as plans and to reapply and such. Currently I go to UC Irvine a well respected school and I am in Army ROTC there. However next year I plan to go to a jc mainly for financial reasons and I am wondering; 1) If the switch from a 4 year (UCI) to a jc will hurt my chances of admission due to the difference in academic strength of the schools, 2) If not particpating in ROTC (because I am at the jc) will hurt my chances. As far as activites I will make up for not being in ROTC with clubs, jobs, and hopefully being on the swim team at the jc. ANyways I worry that not being ROTC next may make it look like I am not committed to being an officer, can anyone give me feedback/advice on this course of action? Thank you.
