DS was denied NROTC scholarship and the longer we wait to hear from USNA the more remote an appointment becomes. Today he met with a Navy recruiter who told him that if he attended a school that did not have a NROTC unit he could participate in AROTC as a non-contracted cadet (?) and then upon graduation apply for Navy OCS. Anyone heard of this? Seems kind of bass ackwards to me, any wisdom out there?
