Okay so we live in a state that did not have any of the schools that support NROTC when my son’s application was submitted. That being said we knew of one university in the state that was planning to start the support but was not yet posted on the choice application. My son listed his 5 schools and checked off "will go to any supporting school" on the application and submitted. He also had to write a reason why he did not go with an In State school... That answer was simple; however, he added he would entertain the current In-State school that was in the process of getting on the list. This is an Ivy school!! In my eyes a "Super Reach". I have read many things: 1. The board has to fill In State first... 2. The board will fill public next... 3. The private come next... 4. The Ivy is last served... So I'm very confused and wondering... If the NROTC says that it's up to the applicant to get into a school and they give 5 choices with the option of any on the application... How could this be part of the board’s decision in giving out the "YES" to an NROTC applicant? Does this decrease my son’s chances because our state does not have a public school that supports the NROTC?
