Hey guys. So I'm considering dropping out of rotc but I'm not sure what would happen if I did. I've seen lots of other people asking but it was from a couple years ago, so I want to get the most up to date info as possible. Here's a little background...so I'm a freshman in my second semester of AROTC and luckily received the 4 year national scholarship. I officially contracted, am getting paid, and all that good stuff. I absolutely loved rotc last semester, but this semester I feel like I'm not in the honeymoon stage anymore and honestly don't like it. I love the people, but I just don't really want to be there. I am involved in a lot at my college and feel as if I'm spreading myself too thin, and honestly rotc is no doubt what I would want to drop first. I don't want to make a rash decision and regret it, but also if I'm going to drop I know I need to do it before starting sophomore year. Assuming I dropped before I started my sophomore year, would I have to repay the money the army spent on me/enlist to pay them back, or would it be early enough where I didn't owe the army anything? If I do have to pay them back, how likely do you think it would be for me to have the option to enlist? I don't really have the money to just pay them back, so I definitely prefer the enlisting option but don't know how realistic that is. Also do you know if it would it be possible to submit my request to drop, see if I had to physically pay them back or just enlist, and then decide if I want to drop based off of what I would owe the army? I know talking to a member of the cadre will be the most helpful to me, but I don't want to talk to them before knowing as much info as I possibly can beforehand. I would appreciate any info or recommendations you have for me. Thank you so much!
