    Is there any new word about the new Naval ROTC program at Arizona State University (ASU) for 2010?

    Well...I got a 4 year ARMY ROTC scholarship to Arizona State. I applied for a NROTC one as well but did not get it. I have accepted my AROTC one and passed all my DoDMERB stuff so I plan on attending this Fall. Are you going to be attending ASU?

    I received an 4yr-NROTC scholarship to ASU for Fall 2010 and I visited ASU last month and talked w/ them about the NROTC unit and they're still setting it up. Looks like they have a CO but I'm not sure about much else. The lady who I spoke with just told me I could email her any questions and she'll foward them to the Capt. Haven't emailed any q's yet but will soon.

    -BTW, you're from AK? hah me too...

    Same here: Palo Verde Main most likely. Stated my major to be Civil Engineering, but maybe considering a switch into Industrial or Mechanical engineering.

    Yeah I'm going to the July 3rd aerospace engineering orientation. It's the soonest that I could make it too, since I'll be coming for Michigan.

    It's an all day thing. You gotta sign up on your ASU account.

    It's only for one day. Maybe not worth flying for but I think it's the best way for learning about more about ASU and signing up for classes n all that. I think I'm going may 28th or June 2nd

    You can take it twice. I took it twice, and the first time I did horrible. I mean horrible. I went and talked to my math teacher, and took my time with it the second time, and did a lot better. I guess for my major, aerospace engineering, you're supposed to be in calculus for engineers freshman year, however I missed it by 3 points. So I have to take a precalculus class freshman year. I have to makeup a math class later on, either taking it over the summer, online, or possibly in place of an elective course during my junior or senior year. So I will be a math class behind everyone else I guess, but my academic advisor said not to worry. The math placement itself is very hard, and you actually have to make graphs. It took me 5 hours to take, no joke. But I took my time on every problem. I had to look some stuff up online too and I used a calculator. Take your time with it, and you should be ok. I am currently in Functions, Stats, and trigonometry in HS. It's all one class at my school, and it's the class below my HS's precalc class. So scoring a precalc on the placement test is right where I should be, I suppose.
