    My son is a senior in hs and wants a military focused college life. He wants to attend a SMS but does not have the grades to get in just yet so we're looking into JMC for a year to get his grades up then reapply to a SMS. The other option is to attend a college with a strong ROTC program but so far the programs at schools he can get into are small (15 - 20 people). We live in Texas but can also go out of state. He's not 100% sure if he wants to ultimately commission or not - he needs to experience ROTC/Core first. Right now our focus is on NMMI and UNG. Does anyone have any insight or opinions on this?

    My USAFA sponsor mom went through NMMI back in the early 90s. My high school classmate went through it in 2006-2007. Most of the people I knew that did NMMI were 1) sponsored through the Falcon Foundation and 2) seemed to enjoy/deal it just fine.

    IIRC, a NMMI representative is on the forums.
