    Since I was a cadet at AFROTC and unfortunately did not get picked up for an EA this year, my commander told me to either go AROTC or NROTC. I picked Navy because that was the next best thing. I asked her that if I should come to PT/LLAB or not and she said still show up anyway. I don't know why I should because I didn't get an EA and I am a AS500 (I got one last year, but my old colonel took it away due to me not graduating on time.) Should I still go to PT/LLAB or should I stop because I am done with all my AS classes here since last year? My stats were as follows:

    GPA = 3.61
    PFA= 93
    AFOQT = 60's and 70's
    Commander's Ranking = Top 10
    Major = History

    It made no sense I didn't get picked up because a non-tech with a 2.62 GPA got picked up. Anyways if you guys can find something online to show to my colonel that I am not suppose to go to pt/llab since I got no EA slot, it would be greatly appreciated! I got school to study for now AFROTC is out for me. It really stinks!!!! :frown:

    IMHO its easier to switch to the Army and get comissioned that way. My son is a college programer 1st year nrotc, no scholarships available next fall for 2014 and 14 available in the spring nationwide. Great PRT's, hghest male GPA in his unit and technical major he will be competitive for a scholarship but no guarantees. He had an appointment to the USNA but wanted regular college so now even getting a comission is in question. If you are LREC there are 24 scholarships for college programmers 2014. These numbers could change for the better for class of 2015 if money loosens up.Check with the Army see what there numbers look like for next year as a college programmer.

    I am not going Army ROTC route whatsoever. I mean I would, but never considered that to be my branch, so that is why I am heading the NAVY route. I am not going for a scholarship at all, but my question is that is it written somewhere that I am suppose to attend LLAB/PT when I didn't get an EA? I don't think I have to since technically I am out of the AFROTC program due to not receiving an EA.

    Do you mean no scholarships available last fall?

    Also, do you know how hard it is to be awarded advanced standing these days?

    For the class of 2014 there are zero 3 year scholarships, 14 2 1/2 year and 22 2 year side load scholarships nationwide. For the class of 2015 there are 70 3 year side load scholarships. For advanced standing, the numbers arn't known yet. Seems the junior officers arn't leaving the military in this down economy and the budget is tight. You must get advanced standing or scholarship to get comissioned(a summer cruise is required)
