The Navy makes it sound like you only have to take a couple required classes, and do a couple cool things in the summer, and they'll give you $180,000 to go to the school of your choice....but I know that's not really the case. How often do you have to get up early for PT? I was talking to someone that went to a state school that did ROTC, and he made it sound like it wasn't that often, like only a couple times during the week. Then someone who goes to USC (but isn't in ROTC, so I'm trying to validify his response) says he sees his ROTC friends up and about doing PT or something every day during the week. But he does not have first hand experience with ROTC, but I figured people would have on here. Not that I don't want to do PT, but let's get real here, waking up at 6 every weekday in college would blow, and I know thats what they do at the service academies, God love em. How much time commitment is ROTC? I know it is significant, but I am getting conflicting answers. Some say it is a breeze, and you don't have to give much time into it, it is just like your campus job that other kids have. Yet other kids say it is a huge burden, socially and academically, with the required classes and events/meetings. Any input on this part? Thanks, that's really all the questions I have for now, but I'm sure more will come up.
