I'm about to finish my first semester of college, and due to complicated reasons, am now not receiving financial aid. This means that the school will probably slam me with a 20,000 bill in two weeks, and that I probably won't return in the spring. I'm trying to consider all my options here, and one thing I'm considering is joining the navy or army (or one of their ROTC programs) to pay for school. Does anyone have experience with these sorts of things? I don't have much experience with military stuff, other than what people say. Some people say it might not be for me because it's not for "free thinkers." I'm just trying to find a way to pay for school, and don't think I'd mind the commitment. In short, I'm paying for college on my own (or rather, failing to and about to drop out) and am looking at the military as an option for financing school. Any advice?
