Just curious, when to you start applying to all of the colleges that you list as choices on AFROTC & NROTC applications? Should we make sure he can pass the DoDMERB first? It appears that it is usually about $40 to apply and then another $11 to send ACT scores -- this could get costly but more than worth it in the end, I know, if it anything works out for him. Do you choose your housing and all that right away? I am sorry if I sound ignorant; this is my first kid! Another question, could he possibly have a better chance of any type of ROTC scholarship if he lists an out of state school in an area with less population? He loves it out West and I know there are some great schools out there w/AFROTC & NROTC units. I realize that we also have to put down one in state choice, be he would definitely be up for an out of state school too. Thanks so much for any help you can give!!
