Are you interested in serving in the military? Would you like all or part of your education paid for by the government?
Do you understand the difference between the US Service Academies which are the Naval Academy (Annapolis), the Military Academy (West Point), the Air Force Academy (Colorado Springs), the Coast Guard Academy (New London) and the Merchant Marine Academy (Kings Point) and the military colleges such as Virginia Tech's Corp of Cadets, The Citadel (Charleston, SC), Norwich University (Northfield, VT) and Virginia Military Institute (Lexington)? The differences in these institutions are significant and the differences in the admissions requirements and processes are significant. In addition, the road to admission can be very cumbersome with many hurdles to jump. CollegeClarity will guide you through the process, as well as help you prepare for your nomination interview.
ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) is an avenue to pursue in addition to the service academies or completely separately. A student is able to receive a 2, 3, or 4-year ROTC scholarship. CollegeClarity will work with you through the ROTC process.
Each route has its unique advantages and disadvantages to consider, but for a student interested in the military these are outstanding options.
