My DS (current HS Jr) is planning on applying to all SA's as well as interested in AROTC preferably at Va Tech. I'm new to this ROTC forum and need some info. What is the difference between Types 1, 2, 7 (and more?) scholarships? Are they dependent upon your intended major and school of choice? We visited Va Tech last week and attended the info session for Corps of Cadets. They recommended NOT applying for ROTC till May so our file does not mistakenly get placed with current Senior Class of 2011 files. Yet, on this forum, I've seen it suggested that now is the time to open the ROTC file. Any suggestions on what he should do--wait or open now? Any/all help with beginning this process would be appreciated! Finally...I've become accustomed to the acronyms used on the SA forums, but there are so many more on ROTC that I cannot figure out and can't find a link to commonly used acronyms. If someone has a list that could be shared, we'd appreciate it! Thanks all!
