I was a former class of 2015 mid at USNA but I dropped out after Plebe Summer. Currently I'm going to UCR because my other choice schools were full and UCR was the only open campus. I realized I made a HUGE mistake from dropping out of USNA (but I don't want to really talk about this decision) and I still want to do military. I'm taking ROTC at Claremont McKenna College, and they said that I should try to transfer in next year and try to get a scholarship next year too. My question is, is that my only option left in terms of a potential scholarship? I was offered an AROTC scholarship to UC Santa barbara (my 3rd choice) but it's been withdrawn cause I went to USNA. The recruiting officer said he'll try to make it work for me and says that the admissions office will make a special case for me to transfer to UCSB next year but I have to be certain that I am committed (usually UC transfers are two years). I highly doubt I will get into Claremont McKenna since I got rejected from schools like UCLA and USC, but I'll try. What exactly is available to me at this point? Is the UCSB probable? The recruiting officer has not contacted me in weeks. Is NROTC still a possible option if I want to reapply to a school with NROTC?
