DS was selected early for NROTC at his 1st choice school. Here at the last minute, he was offered an appointment to the CGA. Obviously, great options and we are thankful but he is now stressed on the decision because he has to decide this weekend. He is truly torn. He has always loved the Navy and war history. He went to AIM last summer and enjoyed it and was very impressed with the Coast Guard. His true interest is politics, government and history which CGA accepted him as a government major. In NROTC, he will be an engineering major which is not his long term career idea. He is hoping they will allow him to change his major which the NROTC officer at his school said he could petition to do but no guarantee. His thought is to eventually attend law school and continue serving. He really likes the school for NROTC but has the thought of how can you turn down an academy. He knows both will require lots of science and math which he is willing to undertake. We are trying to line out pros and cons of both. Any ideas or thoughts to pass along. We are trying to get him to look beyond the 5 to 10 years in service.
