My son was admitted early decision to the VT College of Engineering and the Corps of Cadets. He was awarded an Emerging Leader Scholarship. When he returns he will learn he was declined for the 4 year NROTC scholarship. He is very committed to becoming a Naval Officer. I have tried to glean as much information as I could from earlier posts but I am confused. What are his scholarship opportunities for the remaining 3 years? What are his commissioning opportunities? He is a very hard working straight A student who keeps extremely physically fit. I have read that he should not join NROTC so he can reapply but this not seem to make sense as he will be in the Corps of Cadets in their dorm.. We are out of state but will be moving to Virginia later this year when/if our house sells to retire. I want him to realize his dream and we also want to be able to afford it. Our parent plus loans for our daughter to attend UVA are just coming due. I would appreciate any input - I have zero experience with any of this. I have read about the myriad of program cuts coming. I know he will want to contact his unit directly but this parent would also be greatful for any heads up!
