So when you apply to colleges, do you MUST apply to a major (for ex. electrical engineering) that is ROTC qualified depending on the branch? If not, can you leave it as undeclared, or would that not work out for rotc scholarship? And say, when you list the schools of your choice in AROTC, are they listed in order of preference? and when they offer scholarships, do they vary amounts for each school, or do they choose one school they would offer to; how does this scholarship distribution thing work out? I'm applying for AFROTC, AROTC, and NROTC marine option , as my choices. And for the essays, do they heavily count? and when do the next boards meet for each branch? because i want to know how much time i have that i can spend for the essays before i submit my application before the next board meets. Thanks for advance.
