I won the national award for a 3 year army ROTC scholarship at several schools. At this point in time, it looks like I will be deciding to attend UC Berkeley, with George Washington University as a runner up. I am unsure as what I would like to do in the future, but I am very interested in intelligence and international affairs, especially counterintelligence or counterterrorism. Now I’ve been deciding whether or not ROTC is something I’d want to do, and my research has just made the decision more difficult. I’m not sure if it is the best path to take for my career, on top of the fact that I would like a normal college experience and am unsure if I’m ready for a commitment like ROTC. There’s just a lot of unknowns and any help, input, or advice would be greatly appreciated.
