alright, i'm enlisted in the air national guard, and also a college sophomore.
i know, i want to get commissioned, and i'm pretty sure afrotc will be the easiest way to go.
is the process of getting a 2-year scholarship, extremely difficult?
i've been looking to apply at some minority serving schools, like cal state-frenso, or UNM if it makes the process easier.

anyone have any information about this?
let me know, thanks!

I think places that qualify as Hispanic Serving Institute get automatic $15k/year scholarships for three years to AFROTC cadets who have contracted. Definitely look into that, and the two-year scholarship is almost a given if you pass Field Training and get contracted. I recommend you call the AFROTC cadre at the schools you're thinking about and then go from there.

I am at Fresno State, and we are what the AF deems a Hispanic Serving Institute which basically means we have ALOT of contracts/scholarships to give out and everyone eventually gets one because well we are a small det and have alot of cadets already on contract and with scholarships. Our current commander doesn't like two year cadets that well...he is not allowing wavers unless under certain circumstances, so we have alot of cadets spending an extra year (to make the three year mark) and going for their masters. The best person to talk to is Captain Salviani who is our Unit Admission Officer, he can answer all of your questions and he wont hound you or is all uptight and scary...our cadre office number is: (559) 278-6204. We are going to be having a Open House soon to show people what the program is about. Our det webpage is www.csufresno.edu/afrotc If you have any questions feel free to ask, but the best answers come from Captain S and the cadre and I reccomend you call them or stop by the office.
