I am considering transferring to a Nrotc school within my area. I want to become a college programmer but was wondering about the requirements. I currently have 59 credit hours and would therefore still be considered a sophomore. Can I join the program this late? I read something that said I would have to do 6 weeks of training in Newport, RI to make up for the lost time. Has anyone else experienced this?
You should contact the Freshman advisor at your NROTC school, but here are the BASIC requirement as listed by Georgia Tech's NROTC program. It states that you CAN be a sophomore and be a College Programmer:
