My son has decided to apply to the Citadel, although USCGA is his first choice. We're in SC, and Charleston is looking good to us parents with the price of gas so high! It is a long drive to CT. I'm curious - why were there no essay requirements in the Citadel application? Also, I noted on this forum others saying that by this time of year, they already had admission decisions for The Citadel. Is this "late" for applying to The Citadel? Are there full scholarships that are not ROTC? How are homeschoolers viewed?
