Hello everybody, I've searched through the threads and haven't been able to find an easy answer to my questions, and my ROO is extremely difficult to get in contact with (tried many times). Here's my situation - I am currently attending a 4yr university about 20 minutes away from the rotc battalion I would like to join. I am a freshman, who after this semester will have 20 credit hours, and by the end of the first summer session in 2013, 40 credit hours. I have already been accepted to the school, but for a few reasons, cannot attend full time there until next fall. Because I would be a transfer student, would I be eligible to participate in smp even though it is my first semester of rotc? Also, is there anyway I can apply for a scholarship now? If I can't get the scholarships, I should be able to cover my tuition and academic fees through state sponsored scholarships, and use the SMP stipend for my housing putting me in a financially stable position. If you could provide some insight into my situation, I would really appreciate it!
