I received some exciting news today. I was selected to receive an Army ROTC scholarship to Virginia Military Institute. It is four years- full tuition. I am so happy! I have worked very hard to get to this point in my life. However, I am also applying to all of the service academies, but have not heard back from any of them yet. I am qualified for all three academies (physically, academically, and medically), but I only received a nomination to West Point. My dream ever since I was little was to attend USMA (I am originally from that area). I am now faced with a lot of options that I am very grateful for, but it's just a lot to think about. My initial back up plan if I didn't get into USMA or USMAPS was to attend The University of Baylor's Honor College and do ROTC for a year and reapply to West Point. Now I feel like if I go VMI, I won't want to leave. Any insight on my situation would be appreciated or just any information about VMI compared to the academies would be appreciated. (I am a female) Thank you!
