I'll be attending UGA in the fall and I recently decided to do ROTC. In Georgia there is the Hope scholarship which pays for all of my tuition, so I don't really have to worry about an army scholarship. I talked to the army rotc reps at my orientation and I've enrolled in MILS1010 and MILS1010L, but since I don't have a scholarship or anything does that make me less of an army rotc cadet than anybody else? I want to be as involved in the program as possible. Also, without scholarship or commitment I will not receive the monthly stipend right? The plan was to attend the Coast Guard Academy this year but unfortunately I was waitlisted, then cut. It's still my dream to go and I will be reapplying to join the class of 2015, so I am doing ROTC in the meanwhile in order to get that taste of military lifestyle and to have it on my application. However, if I end up being denied by the Coast Guard again, the plan is to attend UGA for the four years then go to law school. The question I have in this circumstance is: if I stay in Army ROTC and give my commitment after sophomore year, how much of a chance will I have to get in to the JAG program and have the army pay for my law school? My goal is to save lives, not take them. That is why I chose the Coast Guard and would not stick with army for all four years unless it would put me in a position where I could help the army the way they could possibly help me, and in a way that is acceptable to me (being a JAG). Sorry for the long post and all the questions but I am dying to know the answers! Thanks in advance!
