Hey all, so a little background about me, I received a 4 yr Army ROTC scholarship to attend an out of state school. I was blessed to have received this scholarship but I am having trouble deciding whether or not to continue. Army rotc was actually my last thing on the list, I had wanted to a pilot and the air force, navy, and marines were all on that list and army was below because it does not have fixed wing planes. I applied to the service academies like USNA, and USAFA but did not get a nomination and Army rotc was there for a backup. I told myself maybe I might like the army stuff but after freshmen year, there were many negatives about rotc like discipline wise which made disappointed. I can drop my scholarship without having to pay back the money before sophomore year starts which for me is in, mid August. My question, do you think Arotc is worth dropping? Despite surviving freshmen year, it was tough, especially having to meet the height and weight for the army. Other than that, I have a 3.5 GPA and a good pt score. I'm not asking for anybody to make a decision, I just need advice because this is such a hard decision. My plan if I dropped was to attend OCS for navy, marines or the airforce and hopefully try to commission from there.
