    If your DS or DD is looking at these 2 SMC's I can give you my perspective as a parent and also what I am hearing from my son on VTech thus far . DS ROTC Scholarship - Picked Norwich then changed his mind for VTech.

    My DS is a 3C NROTC MIDN at VT but I would be very interested in hearing your son's thoughts. My son loves it there. He is on the Growley Crew and just finished tapping O-Course. Still waiting to see if he made it.

    He is doing very well. If you knew him this is what he was meant to do. He has seen a few drop out already. He thinks that they were just not prepared for the lack of sleep and still having to handle the class work. He is up at 4:30Am and to bed after Midnight . But that is what he did most of his years in HS because of his Crew and XC team training plus the schools workload in general. He said I think a bunch of this people had it easy in school and went to bed at 10PM and now are getting killed. He said the Cadre are great . A bit over the top at times but when them jam him for smiling they ( The female ones ) smile at him after he has to sound off to them and say you get to smile in May. He is a fitness / crossfit nut so the PT is a peace of cake. But was pissed he missed getting his Friday PT's off if he got a certain score on the AROTC PT Assessment. Missed it by a point. LOL . One thing he said is the Math Emporium for his math class is horrible. Not having a teacher puts them at such a disadvantage . All in all he said making the decision to go to VT ve Norwich is key. He likes the big campus excitement and feel. if you had the chance to see Norwich that is just not an option at all.
