I know this is a broad topic, but as we make our Plans B, C, And D, I have a question. Say DS does not receive an appointment to USAFA or USNA and does not receive an AFROTC or NROTC scholarship. Assuming he will still participate in one of the ROTC programs at one of the schools he's been accepted to, I'd like some more information to help him decide which program is the best fit for him. Can anyone give me information on life in the Navy and/or Air Force (after commissioning) particularly in ways they differ from each other? He would like to be a pilot, but understands those slots are limited. Thank you!
