    Hi all,
    The only part remaining on my online application for nrotc is selecting my top 5 schools. I think my top 3 are Carnegie melon, Uva, and Virginia tech, and I need to decide on my major for these schools. I am very interested in computer science and computer engineering, but I know those are tier 2 majors. Does selecting a tier 2 major put me at a large disadvantage in receiving the scholarship? I thought I read that 85% of scholarships go to tier 1 majors. Thanks in advance!

    right... the 85% is Tier 1 + Tier 2. When I last looked at that in about 2010, it was about 35% Tier 1 and 50% Tier 2.
