    ROTC Scholarship to Academy?

    If I do accept an ROTC scholarship will I be locked in? Is it binding? Could I still go to an Academy if I get accepted to one?

    How to be Competitive in ROTC

    For class rank how does it work if one has a tier 1 major (I.e. engineering, chemistry, etc.) VS one with a major like business or economics? Since STEM majors would likely have lower grades/GPA… what if someone is double minoring/majoring? Is this taken into consideration?
