I visited Embry-Riddle at Daytona Beach, and I happened to like the school. I received the 3yr AROTC scholarship to pursue Aerospace Engineering. Since I have the 3yr scholarship, they are giving me a $15,000 ROTC assurance grant my first year. Then once I'm on scholarship, the school will give me a $5,000 grant each year. However, despite the financial aid, I still have to pay $41,000-ish over four years. I was also looking at TAMU, but I will have to pursue physics and it's roughly $56,000-ish over four years. I guess my question is - how do the AROTC units compare at each school (SMC vs traditional)? Is it worth it to attend a SMC if it'll cost me more in the long run? I apologize if it sounds like I'm just rambling on, and thank you for helping me in any way!
