Hello, since my junior year in high school I knew Norwich University was a good fit for me. I applied for the Naval ROTC scholarship but did not receive one, so I'm attending Norwich in the fall with the hopes of a contract. To be honest I just want to be an officer whither it is in the Navy or the Army. I scored a 94 on my ASVAB so the CT National Guard is all over me to join. They can offer my $4,500 my first year and are willing to "bet their career" on the fact that I will get contracted at Norwich in the Spring. -Is the drive from VT to CT every month worth the money towards tuition? -Will joining the reserves really help me get contracted at Norwich? -Can it actually make it harder? Because I'll be running around doing extra things with less time to focus on school and grades Thanks!
