Deep breath: Himself is beginning to start the application process for the ROTC scholarships. As I understand his plans, he will be applying for marines as well as army. I believe I have read here that he is required to list at least one in-state public school on the scholarship application, but he's telling me that the online app for AROTC does not specify that. His top 3 choices are out-of-state private schools and his next 2 choices are out-of-state publics. He has different lists for AROTC and NROTC-MO, but neither list includes an in-state public as one of his top 6 choices. Should I advise him to put our in-state fallback on his applications regardless? Or is his eye-rolling justified (this time)?
