    Are you able to only apply for a Tier 1/2 major for NROTC instead of something like East Asian Studies for LREC? And how many LREC scholarships are given as opposed to Tier 1/2 scholarships?

    No, You can apply for other non tier 1/2 majors outside of the LREC realm. eg. Criminal Justice, History. However this will lower your chances with some services. NROTC will award 85% of its scholarships to tier 1/2 majors. DS struggled with this last year but decided to go with history. Getting a scholarship wasn't worth being un a major he wasn't happy in let alone not performing well. End result was we executed plan B, but he is also thriving academically and in NROTC.

    Sorry for my wording, but what I meant was can you only apply for one major at a time?

    Yes. As far as I know you can only list one major.
