My son is a senior in hs and wants a military focused college life. He wants to attend a SMS but does not have the grades to get in just yet so we're looking into JMC for a year to get his grades up then reapply to a SMS. The other option is to attend a college with a strong ROTC program but so far the programs at schools he can get into are small (15 - 20 people). We live in Texas but can also go out of state. He's not 100% sure if he wants to ultimately commission or not - he needs to experience ROTC/Core first. Right now our focus is on NMMI and UNG. Does anyone have any insight or opinions on this?
