Hi all, I'm a high school senior and I'm looking for some advice on what's options I have for the next four years. At the beginning of this year, I has planned on getting an NROTC scholarship at a fairly elite private university. Things didn't go as planned, I actually didn't even apply for either of those things because I didn't feel qualified and feared rejection, and my laziness didn't help. As of now, it looks like I'll be participating in NROTC off scholarship at a large out-of-state school. I will definitely be applying for a three year scholarship, and will likely be applying to transfer to the private school of my dreams. Suppose I kick butt in college and get great grades in a Tier 1 major - is it even possible to go into sophomore year starting at a new school with a scholarship? Is it more likely that I'd have to either transfer or get the scholarship first, with the other part of the plan being delayed a a semester or two? I will give whatever school I attend next year a fair chance and may not even attempt to transfer, but I'd like to know whether this option is on the table so that I can plan accordingly.
