    My daughter just applied to a school and wants to follow up with an email to the PMS, introducing herself and telling about her interest in joining their ROTC Program. The school's website only has a general rotc email address, but when she looked at the ROTC Faculty list, there were email addresses for the PMS as well as the Recruiting Officer. Which one would be more appropriate to receive the email?

    Send it to the PMS, he/she can respond or forward it as they choose.
    DS sent several short and to the point emails, sometimes the PMS responded, sometimes it was the RO.

    Would you recommend emailing the PMS?

    Can't hurt to email the PMS...common job search wisdom is to try to get your resume before the person that has hiring authority. In this case the PMS is the guy. He may pass your email down to his enrollment officer, but the PMS now knows you exist and you are squared away enough to email him. Might want to cc the enrollment officer to make sure it gets into the hands of the other guy who has influence over the process. Keep in mind that this is also a National process, so don't think this is going to circumvent competition at the national level. You still need to make sure your stuff is solid on your scholarship application. If you don't get a national scholarship your efforts corresponding with the PMS/ROO will help you compete for campus based scholarships.
