    I have decided to graduate from high school one year early. The only thing that is stopping me is the deadline for an ROTC scholarship. The number one goal in my life is to be a naval officer. My counselor told me I shouldn't take the ACT so I didn't. However, after I found out that my ACT scores need to be submitted to NROTC by Dec 31 I began to worry. So today, I took the ACT with writing. I know it is very unlikely I will have my scores back in time to submit my application. Another thing that confused me was that I had to submit scores by Dec 31, but the application wasn't due tell Jan 31. Did I read that right? Even if the deadline was Jan 31 I don't know if I would have my scores back. Does anyone know if there is anything I could do that would allow me to still be considered? If I have to I will stay at high school for another year, but I would rather not if there is any way that my application would still be considered I would like to try. I feel that I have a unique situation since I am graduating a year early.

    Would it make any differences if I decided to apply for Army ROTC Scholarship?

    I interpret the deadline to take the SAT test December 2010 and the application must be complete by Jan 31st 2011. If in doubt call one of the numbers available on the NROTC site.
    Good Luck.

    It would make a difference in your "number one goal" in life.

    I cannot fully answer the question, but I may be able to guide you in the right direction.

    For starters, you can basically take the ACT as many times as you want (I think 10 may be the limit, but it's nowhere close to how many you will realistically do in high school), so I STRONGLY suggest taking it ASAP to get a good read on where you may sit when speaking from a national standpoint.

    If this is truly your #1 goal, then go for it 100%. I agree with aglages when he states that you should call NROTC. A phone call never hurts.

    Not quite sure what you're asking here. If you clarify, I may be able to help you answer it :thumb:

    I noticed that for Army ROTC it said you could update the application until Feb 28. I hope I can get a NROTC schloraship, but if I can't I need to have another plan.

    Well, it never really hurts to apply for all 3 branches' ROTC programs. You never know what the offers will be...

    If you really want to be a NAVY officer, then why not do ROTC at an affordable university without a scholarship if you are not offered one?

    Don't apply to a branch's ROTC program if you're not willing to be an officer in that branch.

    I got an answer from someone who actually knows and here is what she said.

    The deadline to push the submit button on the electronic application deadline is January 31, 2011. The NROTC Coordinator/Recruiter must have all documentation to the Selection and Placement Office by February 15, 2011. Since the ACT you took was administered prior to the end of December, they are valid and they would need to be submitted with your application. I hope this helps answer your questions.

    Thank you for everyones help. It is my goal to be an officer and I hope everything works out.

    As they say, "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard."

    Best of luck to you with everything!
