I have been a member for nearly four years, but have only been gaining knowledge and enjoying the threads for all this time. When I found these forums, my son was 12, now is 16 and becoming more serious about a career in the military. My question is about ROTC Scholarships. I have researched this topic here, GOARMY.com and the University of North Georgia website, but would like some help tying the three into a more specific question/answer. It appears that to get an AROTC scholarship to a regular university, DS would need to apply and rank the tops schools he would like to attend but he doesn't get to determine the school he attends with the scholarship. The UNG website states to apply to the school and then apply for the scholarship, putting down UNG as his first choice and then list 2nd, 3rd choice, etc. But what if he really only wants to attend UNG, doesn't really want to attend any other school for ROTC, just because that was where the scholarship was awarded? Another thing I should point out is that UNG's tuition, (all Cadets receive In-State tuition), is approximately $19,000 this year. This is affordable to our family, so the scholarship is not the determining factor as to whether DS can attend UNG. I have seen other posts discussing that schools with lower tuition are often chosen by Cadet Command (I think that's what it's called) over higher tuition schools for the scholarships. I really haven't asked much of a question here, so let me try to tie this into one. My son (at this moment, he's only a sophomore) only wants to attend UNG. He puts down UNG on the application as his number one choice, does he HAVE to list 2nd, 3rd choice, etc? And then assuming he is attending UNG but doesn't get a scholarship (or in fact, turns it down because it wasn't to UNG) the first year, he can reapply the second year, and if selected for the scholarship can stay at UNG because he is already enrolled/attending that school, doesn't have to change schools (to 2nd or 3rd choice?) Thanks in advance!
