    I know it will be around March when all should know but some have heard already. Has anyone heard back yet if they received a NROTC scholarship? Could you share your stats and schools along with how long after your interview were you notified? TY

    The wait seems to be the hardest part! I'm located in Miami, Florida and no one else from my area has received any word.

    My son was selected in the early board in November last year. He received the phone call over Christmas break. The portal didn't actually update until after the first of the new year.
