DS was awarded an Immediate Scholarship Reservation (ISR) NROTC Scholarship. He hasn’t been placed yet, but listed on his application and has been accepted to VMI, Citadel, and Norwich. He got a bit spooked very recently, though, reading some stories about hazing problems at some of the SMCs, and that ROTC scholarship recipients, in particular, are often singled-out/targeted. Any truth to these stories based on people’s experiences? DS has no concerns about being screamed at or PT’ed until he’s near death, which you’d expect in a military college, but some of the hazing stories he’s heard about seem excessive (serious physical assault, very humiliating acts, etc). Again, hoping to learn from some SMC students or parents as to whether this is common, or just folklore or possibly very rare, isolated events (I know there will always be an occasional bad apple with upperclassmen). Thanks in advance.
