Joining AFROTC
« on: November 03, 2014, 06:09:28 AM »
     So, I'm joining the ROTC program at my college! I'm really looking forward to it, but I have some questions, if anyone has answers, I'd be very grateful for the help!
   My situation:  I discovered the program in my Junior year of college. I've had a couple rough semesters and am getting the grades fixed ASAP. I am about halfway through my degree at the moment.

    1. I know for the scholarships, you need to be a full time student, but what about a non-scholarship cadet? Considering where I am in my degree -I also plan to change my major- should I take fewer classes to stay within the ROTC progam's four year guideline? Should I take another degree?

        While it is a concern,  I want to go into Intelligence.  I feel like they are going to prepare me for what may happen.  Also,  I'll finish my degree in 2 years or so,  then I will go and learn stuff which takes about a year if I get the job I'm going for.

Hmm I could tell you that it's a big  test on your mind but this is just going of words from my brothers who joined shortly after getting out of school so I'm  not  sure what I can tell you to expect
