My son is a senior, graduating May 2014. He has been working on his application to West Point, as well as researching ROTC options and other colleges. We've been quite lost in our information gathering about ROTC. For one, we cannot figure out the deadline for applying for ROTC. I think I finally stumbled upon something here about an October deadline, but I haven't been able to find that at any of the websites. Is that so? Is he too late to begin the application process? Is the deadline for opening a file or for completion of a file? Thank you for any help.
