This question has been discussed a little bit in the Reapplying Club thread, but I felt like it needed it's own thread so prospective reapplicants like me can see both sides in it's own thread seperate from other conversation. It seems like a lot of QNV candidates from this year are motivated to reapply next year, so I know I'm not alone in the NWP vs ROTC dilemma. So my hope is that people from each side can post their opinions and experiences in a universal address for Plan B-ers. Also, if anyone knows the admissions viewpoint on one versus the other, that would be helpful to know. I do know that this decision is not the same for everyone though, one is not necessarily better than the other for everyone. So if anyone wants to give an opinion on my personal dilemma, that would help too. My ALO is suggesting I stay home, go to the local University, and do AFROTC. Her reasoning is that my academic score does not need improvement. There's definitely room for improvement in that score though. My SAT score is average compared to other candidates (700-math 600-reading). My area needing improvement is definitely physical. I had mostly average scores on the CFA, and zero HS sports. I know either path can lead me to an appointment, but I guess I want to pick the one that is more likely to lead to an appointment for ME. And I'm sure every other reapplicant wants that too, so don't be afraid to make generalized posts about NWP vs ROTC.
