This is kind of related to kinnem's thread about summer training cuts. My DS told me last night that the college programmers in his NROTC unit are being told that there will not be money for college programmers to get scholarships. I explained Advanced Standing to DS, to help him understand that lack of scholarship doesn't mean the college programmers will necessarily be out after sophmore year (he has made friends with a college programmer in his batallion and will be his room mate next school year). I also mentioned what we are constantly reminded of on this forum - what happens this year could be different next year. At any rate, this must be very disheartening news to those who have taken the college programmer route. Any other words of wisdom?
