So I've been reading the previous thread about AROTC for the past few days and its really worrying me. Seems like slipping grades, a remedial APFT, or other things can end your scholarship right there. Whether or not all this talk (that is frightening to a scholarship recipient like me) is true, I want to know: If AROTC is really looking to cut back the number of commissioned officers that go active duty, would NROTC be a better option? I'm not going to go into this again because I don't want to be repetitive, but I can see myself in the Army or Navy. If the Navy has not been hit as hard by budget cuts (perhaps only because NROTC is just smaller and commissions less officers than AROTC) then would that mean I have a better chance becoming an ensign with a Navy 4-year scholarship than a 4-year Army scholarship? It seems like Navy has been less impacted on the ROTC side of things (just my impression). If the previous post (titled: downsizing AROTC) is really on-the-mark, then wouldn't becoming a midshipmen give me a better chance of a military career? Thanks for any and *all* feedback.
