Here's the deal:
I'm trying to get into Georgetown University but it's $30k a year. My test scores aren't great and I don't think i'm gonna get a lot of scholarship money. However, I am currently in the ROTC program and if i get the scholarship(Best scholarship chance) then they'll give me a full ride. The catch is that i have to commit 4 yrs in the millitary after i graduate as a 2nd Leutinat. I'm not really "gung-ho" about the military but i have a chance for this scholarships?
My question is --is it worth a military career to pay for an expensive college?

whew this is one a real tough question.
my answer is to not post it up here. u should really take a strong consideration of pros and cons with that decision, and use your parents, school teachers, and guidance counselors for help with that decision.

however, if you'd truly like to know, i would personally not go to the military, maybe the Air Force Academy, but not the military

thats just my 2 cents on the issue
