Here is a story for those who know more about how the NROTC process works. My DS started filling out his NROTC application in August 2015 shortly after completing his USMMA and USNA applications. Before he even completed or submitted the NROTC application, he had a Navy Recruiter wanting to meet with him to "help him through the process." The next thing I knew, this recruiter had talked my son into signing up for the delayed entry Navy Nuclear program with grand pronouncements about after he completed the 2 year nuke program he was "almost certain" to get a USNA appointment since they "had special spots set aside for this graduates in USNA." I noticed the same people involved with the Navy recruiting for delayed entry were also involved in the NROTC process. Flash forward to today and my DS has received an appointment to the USMMA and is on the waiting list for USNA, but we haven't heard word one from NROTC. NROTC never even initiated a waiver process for childhood asthma that USNA and USMMA granted waivers for long ago. My wife thinks that these recruiters manipulated the NROTC process in my son's case because they thought they had him in the Navy Nuke program and were pleased he was helping them fill their quota for Navy Nuke. Could this be the case? He received Senate and Congressional nominations for the USNA and isn't it much more competitive than NROTC? Likely, the don't "have him" because I'm fairly certain he will chose USMMA if he doesn't get the USNA appointment, but they've even tried to undermine that decision. I've become somewhat jaded about navy recruiters through this process. Any comments appreciated from a father not sleeping too well the past month!
