This seems to good to be true... Can anyone explain this to me? I was told today by a Illinois state school battalion officer, that if you are an Illinois resident, and you get into an Illinois state school (IE University of Illinois) and you join ROTC, even if you dont contract, Your tuition is waved. I must have looked like a complete idiot because I told him, "No I dont think so, you are wrong." To which he replied basically that 'he would know!' say whaaaatttt?
