Son accepted appointment earlier this year and then he was notified of 4 year AROTC scholarship offer. Should one accept ROTC as a backup until R Day or in case he would change his mind on schools. Have until end of February to accept ROTC scholarship. Anyone else in same boat? I did do a search on this forum and USNA forum for similar situations and read varying opinions. It seems the prudent course would be to accept ROTC and decline at last possible deadline. Any advice or opinions from current prospectives or past cadets and their parents welcome.
