    ...or is it too late?


    I have not been awarded a scholarship though (hopefully coming, but I'm not gonna hold my breath!), been eligible since end of December.

    I feel like I have a decent chance, 4.2 GPA, 2110 SAT, Eagle Scout, Student Govt, a lot of volunteering, some sports, and a few other things. Interview went well.



    Is it possible for me to change one of my schools?

    Right now, I have them as:

    1. George Washington unit (applied to Georgetown)
    2. Michigan
    3. Ohio State (in-state)
    4. UVa
    5. USC


    I'd like to keep all of these schools on the list, but you can only have five. I applied to a lot of schools that have NROTC that aren't on my list, like Penn, Notre Dame, Northwestern and a few others.


    I would like to add Penn to the list, take UVa off and move USC up to 1 or 2 and Penn would take up the other spot.





    Oops, just checked the status page. I can change the schools. So that means I could probably move the order of schools around as well. Right?

    Should I also mention in the email(actually I'll probably call tomorrow) that I have applied to 4-5 other universities that have NROTC and mention them?



    Guess I didn't really need to ask this question, but should I try to see if they will take note of the other schools I applied to? Wouldn't really hurt me in anyway I guess.




    Thanks!

    Sorry but I don't know. My DS received a scholarship, type 2, from AFROTC for the U of Illinois College of Engineering, which has been a top 5 school in the country for the past 40 years. This week he received an email from the MIT det. saying they'd love to have him join them. He's decided to go with an USAFA appointment and reject both the U of I and MIT which are higher rated engineering schools. AF means more to him than engineering credentials. What can I say? An AFROTC scholarship (type 2) will go back in the bin.

    There is an email on the status page to send the email request to.

    danger zone: Yes, you definitely can prior to selection. MY DD has reranked her schools for NROTC twice now by sending an email and she has received a reply email with an attachment showing that they reranked the schools the way she requested. This was a month or so ago, so I don't know if they will still do it this late in the game. Best wishes!

    Thanks guys.



    Just sent an email, we'll see what happens.



    Wow, A10, MIT must have been hard to turn down! Firend just got a NROTC scholarship, but he's going to Annapolis or West Point (got into both), so he isn't going to use his scholarship.



    hiker, how long did the confirmation email come after you submitted the request? A couple of days? A week?




    Thanks again

    dangerzone,
    DS (Freshman) loves U of M and NROTC. So far the experience has exceeded expectations.

    Go Blue!
