Do you want to be all that you can be - in the army, the navy or the air force? Then check out what the ROTC can offer you!

ROTC - An Overview

The Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) prepares young peeps to serve in the military. The ROTC is a college program that's offered at over 1,000 colleges and universities across the US. They offer scholarships in the Army, Navy and Air Force. You can apply for a 4-year scholarship while you're in high school, but you must meet the general qualifications.
  • Be a US citizen.
  • Be 17-26 years old.
  • Have a high school GPA of at least 2.5.
  • Have a high school diploma.
  • Pass the physical exams.
  • Agree to serve in the military after graduating college.
  • ROTC - Why Should I Join the ROTC?

    Getting up at the crack of dawn to have a drill sergeant yell at you to drop and give him 20 may not exactly be appealing, but if you're looking for a chance to serve your country, pay for college and find a rewarding career after graduation, then the ROTC is the path for you.

In order to be accepted, you have to take the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test, which is a standardized test that's similar to the SAT.

    My brother is 15 and he makes fun of everything I do. I used to get along with him when I was younger but now that we're older he's started acting like a jerk. He always picks on the things I'm most insecure about and it happens all the time. What should I do?
