This is my first post on this forum. I greatly appreciate its existence and the ability to access such great information so quickly. My family is truly in a quandary over how to handle the ROTC acceptance letter. My son is 3q'd with 3 nominations to West Point and we are in the midst of the waiting game with many others. He has been awarded an Army ROTC scholarship to his Plan B school; however, in the interim between applications and interviews, the Plan B school offered him a full four year academic scholarship. My question, and please forgive me if this is stupid but we have NO military experience in our family, is why would he accept the ROTC scholarship if he already has a no-strings full ride to that same school? He doesn't want to take money from someone else who needs it and feels that to accept would be dishonorable. He's hopeful for West Point (or civil prep) with a full ride to Plan B. Can someone tell me why he would/should accept the ROTC by the deadline in February? Thank you for your time!
