    My son has been accepted into his top school and now we are just waiting to hear about the NROTC-Marine Option scholarship. If he does not get it, he will leave for the reserves on 6/13/2011. He has a 3.6 GPA, he is in the top 15% of his class, he has 10 varsity letters for sports, Student Council for 4 years, FCA, has worked all thru school, coached Little League, and between AP and concurrent enrollment, he will have 19-22 college hours by the time he graduates.
    I talked to his recruiter today, but he still did not know much. I figure since he has also already passed all the tests and been accepted into the reserves, that should be good for him. His SAT scores were good, but his ACT's were only so-so. The recruiter also said that since he had gotten into his top choice school before he applied for the scholarship, that should help. Can anyone that has been through this give me any insight?
    I would not be this antsy, but their are deposits to make and housing to condsider if he DOES get the scholarship, and other considerations to make if he does not.

    If your son wants to go to that school, become an officer and pay the tuition you may consider the college program option. You can reapply for the 3 and 2 year scholarships but they are tight. Its like being a walk on, and if he performs well he may get a scholarship. The college program students do everything the scholarship students do except the summer cruises and don't get a stipend.
