    What are the chances of getting a NROTC scholarship for a Tier 3 major? We've heard several different stories: there are a limited number, the Navy wants more (especially middle east studies), and then hardly any are given out? Any one have any idea?

    15% is the number I've heard; however it is possible - I'm a living testament to that. I've received a Tier 3 NROTC scholarship this year. I'm sure expressing some interest in majoring in a specific language will help, but I'm not sure how much help it will have.

    My son expressed an interest in middle east studies and a related language. Doesn't appear to have helped.

    Do you think they have run out of money for scholarships? They are cutting back NROTC summer programs. No in house money for NROTC units?
