    Just submitted my application. Spoke to the coordinator/recruiter and will be meeting with him sometime next week to make sure everything is in order. Aiming/training to do my PFT in August, so hopefully he doesn't try to get me to do it any earlier since I'm sitting at a 230 right now.

    How's everyone else's progress with the application/process?

    I mailed my transcript off and faxed everything over last week and my recruiter will be coming on June 23rd to give me my PFT and interview. I was hoping to take it later... Bummer.

    Well good luck! Was there no way you could push the PFT off? My guy basically told me he has certain saturdays scheduled for the poolees to run the PFT, but the full app can't be sent to the national boards until I get the PFT in. Which is fine, if I take it late July/Early August, I'll still get my stuff in for the first board.

    Nope. He sent out a list of dates when he would be in certain locations and my city is on June 23rd. I'm hoping he will be coming again though to administer it again so maybe I could retake it. Either way, whatever happens happens. Do you know when the boards meet? Good luck you as well.

    Would you mind telling me who my recruiter would be? I've talked to a Navy guy, but i don't know if it would be a different person because I chose Marine Option over Naval ROTC.

    Can you apply for NROTC and Marine Option scholarship separately, or only choose one over the other? Thanks.

    You can only apply for one. However, you can change between Navy/Nurse/Marine Option until you hit submit.

    Why can you only pick one, only Navy or MC?...they are technically two different branches.

    I was planning on applying to both, but I guess I'll apply to Navy, I think I would like being in the Navy more.

    Regardless of the option you're doing (Marine, Navy, or Nurse), you are part of NROTC (NAVAL Reserve Officer Training Corps). NROTC is associated with the Department of the Navy. The Marine Corps is part of the Department of the Navy and does not have it's own department; however I've heard speculation about maybe changing the name to "The Department of the Navy and Marine Corps" or something like that. When you apply for the scholarship, you have to indicate which option you'd like to apply for. Marine, Navy, and Nurse options have different requirements during college for NROTC.
