I'm the mom of three healthy boys and interesting in exploring service academy/ROTC scholarship opportunities for them, but don't really know where to begin. I have lurked on the forums and explored each military branch website, but am really unsure where to go from there. I understand that service academy/ROTC scholarships are very competitive so my general message to my boys has been the same as for any other path - work hard, keep your grades up, participate in extracurricular activities, volunteer, etc. My oldest will be a freshman next year and thinks he's ultimately interested in JAG. I think we've narrowed the branches down to air force or army for him, but do any of you have any advice for how to further narrow things down - e.g., service academy, ROTC, which service academy (I'm confused about the ones that are not West Point/Air Force Academy). Are there books you suggest? People to talk to? Websites? Any guidance would be much appreciated.
