My DS has mentioned that if he doesn't get an appointment from the SA or the NROTC scholarship that he might consider just enlisting into the Navy. He's been accepted to all 5 of his NROTC schools and also has received several scholarship offers that are part of each school. Not full scholarships but every little bit helps. I've told him that he can still be part of the NROTC program at school even without the NROTC scholarship but he says he has to think on it. I'm just not sure how I should talk to him about this, I really don't want him to miss out on going to college with how hard he has worked in HS to get where he is now. But he's also 17, and "knows everything". LOL. Any advice on how to discuss with DS would be appreciated.
