Hey guys. I'm currently a junior in high school and I really want to go a Federal Service Academy. I have began my pre-application for all of the Academies except Merchant Marine ( I don't want to go there ). I know that the Academies are extremely competitive and there is a good chance that I would not be selected to attend so I'm being realistic and looking at other ways to become an Officer. I was looking at ROTC and I'm a little confused. Do you apply to the University, and if you are accepted, then apply for ROTC at that campus? Do you have to be accepted to the University like you commit there and then you can apply for ROTC? How likely is it that you can get a full ROTC scholarship? What other types of ROTC scholarships are there? Like no scholarship, quarter, half, full etc...? If you could explain the process, that would be very helpful. Thank you!
