Dear All, This is my first post, and I googled for answers before sending it, so please accept my apologies if this is a repeat question. My son began his NROTC application yesterday. About midway through the process, we saw that a (we think) new rule has been added -- one of his top three choices must be a school at which he is eligible for in-state tuition. The issue for him is that he is applying for third tier/LREC, and none of the schools in our state (SC) offer an LREC major. We will speak to a recruiter about this, but wonder if he needs to apply in state or is eligible for a waiver. A second question is what his chances are for an LREC. He wants to major in Asian Studies and take Chinese. He is fully capable of doing a technical major, but has no interest. His desired schools are Rice, Northwestern, Yale, and Notre Dame. His grades are straight A's with a lot of APs. He will be doing AP B/C calculus his senior year. He is a 4-year varsity wrestler and will be captain this coming year. He has over 100 hours of community service in high school. He is co-founder of his school's model U.N. His SAT's are 800 Math, 800 Verbal, and 700 Writing. Thank you so much for any thoughts you might have.
