    Hello all, does anyone have information on the Auburn University NROTC department? Such as number of cadets (Navy option), how many are on scholarship, how competitive it is to get a 4 year scholarship there(Navy option), or if anyone has any personal experience with the department. This is my #1 choice school and any information on it would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    you can learn a few basic things by looking around their website: http://www.auburn.edu/academic/rotc/nrotc/ 2nd photo

    For example, from this photo, it looks like they have about 100-120 (hard to tell if they're 3 deep or 4 deep in the picture, 34 across) in Navy Option and about 10 in Marine Option. I suspect this photo contains mids from both schools -- Auburn and Tuskegee

    If nobody posts with your answers, I suggest calling the Freshman Advisor (usually a LT) for NROTC at Auburn and just asking him/her your specific questions. They will usually know the # of scholarships their unit has been allocated for this fiscal year, and how many have been spoken for out of the Boards that have met up to this time.

    P.S. A reveiw of some documents on the website shows that the Freshman Advisor is a LT Nunez.

    I agree. Those are great questions to bring to the unit. If you can't visit establish contact by phone. The contact info is on their website. It's always a good idea to be in communication with your #1 choice school's unit.

    Although the number on scholarship vs college programmers is nice to know it really makes no difference. All MIDN are treated exactly the same and are given the same leadership opportunities. Also, the scholarships are awarded nationally and then matched to one of the selectee's schools. The unit can fill up with scholarships (I suppose) but there would normally still be room for college programmers. As a college programmer you can re-apply for a sideload scholarship each semester starting second semester freshman year through (at least) second semester sophomore year.

    This is also my DS's first choice school as well. He is trying for MO. I spoke with a Capt. Weiss there last week and he told me that they had around 250 mids. Back when I attended Auburn in the late 80s there were over 400 Navy and MOs.
