Hello everyone it's been awhile since I have posted. I have recently visited my first school of choice and was given a pretty tough decision to make. This decision would be easy with a 4 year national scholarship, but I would say that is a slim chance of happening. I talked with the ROO at the University which had informed me of a new fact which is that all ROTC cadets(non contracted) are given in state tuition. I will say the tuition per semester is very minimal compared to most large publics in the country. My other a option is to join ROTC while being in the simultaneous membership program. In this state I would receive a tuition exemption. I am very committed to pursuing ROTC and in all honesty getting the best bang for my buck. If anyone has insight on this I would appreciate it. Taking SMP incurs a contract which I must fulfill and arguably adds burden on being as successful in college. SMP will make me an better officer with more in depth training. ROTC I could compete for an on campus scholarship while still receiving a substantial discount on tuition. Thank you for all advice ahead of time.
