    So those of you with ROTC scholarships, and even those still waiting hear back, where are you (or your son/daughter) going? What are you going to major in? I just figured it would be interesting to see the broad spectrum of schools and majors...:thumb:

    My daughter is 98% sure she is going to the University of Portland (she goes to visit this weekend) and will major in nursing. :yllol:

    My daughter's choices are as follows:

    Accepted at:
    Embry Riddle: Air Traffic Management, small civilian scholarship
    Norwich: Physics, civilian scholarship
    University of Hartford: civilian scholarship, physics
    Waiting to hear from:

    AFA, UNH, Plymouth State and SUNY

    We haven't heard yet about an AFROTC scholarship. We thought her interview was in on time for this past board, but apparently not, because her status hasn't changed at all. No news can't be bad news! (We hope).

    My son is already accepted at UofA Tucson and declared Russian as his major. Now he's waiting to hear from the March Review Board whether or not he'll receive a scholarship. That's his #1 choice, and the ROTC unit contacted him last week to ask if he was still interested in the program/school.

    He's already been accepted to ASU Tempe and CSU San Marcos (here in San Diego County) and I think declared Spanish as his major at those schools. He's waiting to hear from SDSU if he's been accepted and declared Russian as his major there, too. (Both UA Tucson & SDSU have excellent Russian programs.)

    We're thinking that he'll mostly likely be a History major with Russian as a minor - or something in Linguistics.

    Congratulations to those who've received their scholarships, and best wishes to everyone still waiting!

    My son will attend Texas A&M for aerospace engineering.

    Fingers crossed on NROTC, but I'm not hopeful after the AFROTC board rejection!
