Hello, So I'm planning on doing AFROTC but I'm still waiting on the scholarship. The thing is I'm in quite a sticky situation and would like to see how my plan B works. If I were to win the scholarship, I'd attend a more prestigious college, a UC. Yes, I understand it's 2 years and then SFT selection will determine next 2 years of scholarship, but if I were to have 2 years paid, I can push out the rest of the years. However, I was wondering if I were to go to community college, how would the selection process be like? Would it change since it's a CC? I'm wondering because if I don't receive a scholarship, this would be my second option as it is a financial saver. Well I'm not going to underestimate college but community college is somewhat "easier" than the big universities and competing for a transfer spot at a bigger university gives the students a reason to achieve high GPA. In that case, would the GPA at CC carry less weight? I believe there's a cross-town agreement with a college near the CC. I'm just wondering if my chances of SFT would be lowered because I attend a CC. Obviously if I do get selected for SFT and also transfer to a more prestigious or bigger university, the environment and pace would be overwhelming. However, that I will adapt to. I made it into many great colleges, but unfortunately financially my parents can't afford it. My parents do not qualify for any financial aid and their income bracket is ~$70,000. However, they continuously support 3 families, one in Vietnam and at the end of the day they don't keep much. Also, I feel bad because I barely see them due to their work and if I attend an expensive college, it would be worse for them. Oh and also, if I do make it to SFT on a non-scholarship, do I get anything afterwards? Maybe a small scholarship? Stipend? Thanks guys.
