First, I want to thank each and every member who has posted on this forum. The words of wisdom, advice, and information you have shared has been extremely valuable to my son who is a candidate for admission to the service academies for the class of 2011. My question is--son is already receiving offers of 4-year ROTC scholarships from some of the colleges he listed on his application. All are great schools. He has not yet received an offer from his first choice college. One of the offers has a letter of intent deadline of 11/24. If I understand the information we read in the ROTC packet correctly, you may only accept one scholarship offer. (This is his Plan B if offer of nomination/appointment does not come through with academies. He knows he will forfeit any 4 year scholarship if he gets an appointment.) For those of you who have sons or daughters facing the same decision, what would they do? Would they wait and see if the first choice school comes through, or would they commit to one of the other offers on the table? Anyone else who has already been through this, please feel free to comment as well. Thanks for any advice you are willing to share.
