I'm looking for someone to validate or invalidate DS's thinking on a Plan B. Assuming he get's his appointment to USNA and that's clearly his first choice (which he will accept), does it make sense to go through the process to apply for NROTC too? The fear/risk is that he'd sustain some injury in the spring that would prohibit him from being inducted. (he plays rugby). But would NROTC have the same medical hurdles that USNA has on I-day? Sure, NROTC would start a few weeks later I presume and more time to heal from this theortical injury. The work to apply to ROTC and then 5 other schools is not insignficant and if it's a bad Plan B, would like to know now.
