    I was wanting a comparison of VMI and NGCSU in terms of overall cadet life.

    I know in terms of tuition, NGCSU is much more affordable in my case. I also like how cadets receive in-state tuition and have access to special clubs (Aggressor Platoon).

    However, I love hiw everyone that attends VMI is a cadet first and foremost. The tradition seems much greater. What is the comparison of the schools in terms of competitiveness of ROTC scholarships?

    I'm a very well qualified student. Which would you recommend?

    Go to the school that you feel meets your needs and goals. My opinion is that VMI makes great citizen soldiers. The best. Whether you want to commission or not, I believe that my beloved Institute forges "educated and honorable men....prepared for the varied work of civil life". Also I am a cadet so feel free to ask specific questions.

    Alright, I've posted this on this site several times before. What do you think my honest chances are of an AROTC scholarship to VMI? As an out of state applicant, there's literally no way I could afford the $40 grand per year.

    My cumulative GPA is 3.85, and I'm in the top 20% of my class. I take the ACT April 13th and expect to do well on it. I've taken Honors classes and am enrolled in 2 AP classes next year.

    I letter varsity on our Tennis team. I'm also a member of our school's Muay Thai club and participate in local trail runs. I was recently elected Secretary of our National Honor Society chapter. I also do a lot of community service for my church youth group, and have over 85 internship hours and my local fire department. I also plan on getting a summer job.
