I'm debating whether or not to apply at NYU and I need to decide soon. It's about 55,000 a year I believe, but I'm planning to do ARMY ROTC. It is my understanding that I would do this at Fordham. How much of my tuition will be paid by being in ROTC at NYU specifically since they are not a host school? I'm doing it to specifically become an Army Nurse. Does anyone at NYU do this personally? How many women do it? Any do it for nursing? Please respond if you only know from firsthand experience or from close friends.

I appreciate the help GREATLY. THANKS.

    I was in Air Force ROTC at Manhattan College but I had to quit since I couldn't make it to the leadership labs (LLAB) every week. I had to dedicate twice a day every week on ROTC activities (training, labs, FTP, PT, etc).

    There are currently two ROTC detachments in NYC. (Air Force/Manhattan College and Army/Fordham. There's word that Navy ROTC will open up soon at Columbia. Not sure when, but won't be anytime soon?

    1) If you're doing ROTC so that you can get a free tuition ride for school, you're going to hate every second of it.
    2) Not everyone gets their tuition paid for through ROTC. You have to apply for it and earn it competitively (You can either apply for scholarship when you're in high school or you can join ROTC and depending on your desirability, you can earn one.
    3) You can always do OCS/OTS and earn a commission as a nurse if ROTC does not work out for you.
    4) Contact the Detachment at Fordham for more info. They'll let you know when NSO (New Student Orientation ) is.
    5) Not sure about Army ROTC but in Navy and Air Force ROTC, if selected, during your summer before Junior year, you attend Field Training (Boot Camp) and contract.

    Also, there are different types of scholarships out there. For AFROTC, there are type 1, 2, and 7. Basically, depending on your major and tuition cost, they give you that much.

    Lastly, doing ROTC does not guarantee free money nor does it guarantee that you'll commission as an Officer. People drop like flies in the program. If you know that being in the Army is something you really want to do, you'll have no problem but if you're doing it for other reasons, good luck. And everything I've mentioned above pertains to Air Force ROTC. Some things might vary but the content and things you do are very similar.
