    Well.. I'm still debating if I should take the AFROTC scholarship, or goto NMMI for USMMA prep school :( I changed my type 7 afrotc scholarship to a type 2 3-year, but I still wouldn't be financially sound to pay the first year of college. Which one should I pursue?

    USMMA is known for it's options!!!

    Minjoojung, There are mids who commission AF from KP. I don't know the numbers. However you know that USMMA is a maritime academy. It also is an incubator for young officers. That are coveted by all the branches of the miltary and NOAA. You have to ask yourself the question. Do you have enough interest in spending the next 5 yrs.( 1 prep 4 KP ) In a school thats primary mission is to produces officers for the US merchant marine and and provide emergency sea lift capability to the navy. Good luck !!

    PS. If I were you. KP is where i would go.

    If possible pay a visit to KP if you have not and see how you feel being there.
