A request for a fundamental clarification: let's say a candidate receives a 4 year scholarship award for NROTC. How does the scholarship award designate the "Tier" from which you must select your major? Is this based strictly off of your major selection on the application? (My DS', e.g. was chemical engineering and political science as the second choice). In a nutshell, my DS is wondering if he'll be locked into a Tier 1 major because of his chemical engineering selection as a first choice major in his NROTC application, or if it is possible to select a Tier 2 or 3 major after the scholarship is awarded.
