My son is going to be a college freshman in the fall. He has been offered a 4 year Army ROTC scholarship. He applied for a NROTC scholarship, but was not offered one. The Navy is his 1st choice. At this point, he is seriously considering joining the NROTC program at his school as a college programmer with the hope of earning a 3 year scholarship. Money-wise, we can afford to pay for some of his college. I am wondering how difficult it is to earn a NROTC scholarship as a college programmer. I am sure he will be competing with others with the same intention. I would really appreciate any insight on this. Thank you for your help!!!
Your best bet is to ask the recruiting officer of the NROTC unit of his college and ask how their success rate of getting the 3-year scholarship is at that school. Ask him/her about the types of things that the successful candidates had on their records.
