My DS completed interview with local recruiting office and was told they wanted to recommend him for ISR a couple of weeks ago. Apparently they want him to commit to the NROTC option now. It will be many months before he hears anything from USNA or other academies on an appointment. His first choice is the academy route (USNA, USAFA, USCG) but does not want to miss out on the NROTC scholarship either. Is this common that DS's/DD's have to choose this early? Any advice?
