DS is finishing his junior year of high school and plans on applying ED to VMI. Last fall he attended the spend the night program, and that's what cemented his desire to go there. However, we didn't make any appointments with anyone from admissions or ROTC because we didn't know that might be a good thing to do. He is also in the process of applying for the AROTC scholarship. Since that visit, we have done a lot of research online and in this forum and have had many of our questions answered. He also talked with a person from admissions who visited our county. My question is, would it be advisable for him to establish some kind of relationship with someone in admissions and/or the ROO? And if so, how does he go about doing that? Thanks for any advice.
