Hello, I'm new here. I am a High School senior this year, I go to JROTC (I am a Cadet Major and the Battalion's S3) at a regular high school however my classes are taken at an academy (Marine Science) attached to that school. I've wanted to serve for sometime and talked with people and sent in an application for a NROTC scholarship. However after talking with some people I really want to go into the Marine Corps (The Navy Petty Officer that talked with me said it was possible for me to sideload into the Marine Option, but its not guaranteed) and I have a Marine Recruiter trying to convince me to join the Delayed Entry Program. However my family is steadfast against the later. They fully support me joining the military however my current weighted GPA is 4.5 and I've taken 4 AP tests (3 fives, one 4) I took the ACT and had a 26 cumulative and had I believe around an 1800-2000 SAT score. Also I have also already been offered full scholarships from places like Stetson. I've also been invited to apply by Annapolis and West Point and I am also interested in Norwich and the Citadel. However since I applied for the Navy ROTC is it possible for me to get the Marine Option from on of these colleges? What are yalls opinion on the delayed entry program? I know an ROTC scholarship is no guarantee but I really want to join the military and I pretty set on joining the Marine Corps. Do I need to change my application, I would like to hear your opinions.
