Is it reasonable to join ROTC while getting an MPP?

I am looking into doing an MPP after I finish school next year. I will graduate with no debt and don't want to take out student loans. Although I think I'll get some sort of scholarship/fellowship/teaching assistantship, I'm not confident that I'll get a full ride. So with this in mind, I have a few questions:
Will it be difficult to do both an MPP and ROTC at the same time in terms of time commitment/physical tiredness/etc.?
How hard is it to get scholarships for both/either?
ROTC specific: What service would you recommend? If you have personal experience, what are the classes and summer training programs like?
