DD received CGAS. She applied for the NROTC. She was accepted into her number 2 school Marquette. She also was awared scholarship money to Marquette, a good chunk. NROTC is for number 1 school which she was wait listed to. The reasonable thing to do is to change it over to her number 2 school. No 2 school awards additional scholarship to NROTC students accepted into their engineering program, which she has been accepted into. Engineering is a five year program. It appears the internal scholarship award can be used along with NROTC award so possibly 5 th year may be covered. Have to verify this. She has gotten over not having a direct appointment to CGA. Many other factors lean her towards CGA which I agree with. When people get awared direct appointment they usually have a plan B which can include another service academy, or Af/N/ ROTC in the wings. What do you suggest for a scholars appointee? DD is all for CGAS. Dad and I want to make sure she gets to Scholars Day in one piece and finishes through. When she signs on the dotted line at scholars she has a 1 year contract, so my thinking is to release the NROTC at that time? Report day is a month later than direct appointments. Will bubble wrap last until July 25th?
