    Hi, this is my first posting..my DS submitted his NROTC app...I was just reviewing his saved pdf file on the computer and noticed he changed his choices of schools..no problem, except his first choice he put was the wrong school (one he is not even applying too)....a simple miss click I am sure...the school we wanted to list as #1 which he did apply too now is not on his list of 5....what do we do? Help please

    Have your DS contact them ASAP via phone, text or email. I am pretty sure HE cam correct the issue since no scholarship has been awarded.

    It is much harder once the scholarship is awarded, he need to be proactive.

    He needs to take the lead!

    Email is the most effective way. They have to have it in writing and it has to be from him.

    We have experienced a few problems getting things changed with NROTC. My DC changed his schools and it too several phone calls and emails over a few weeks before they changed it. He has been trying to get new SAT scores added for three months and is still waiting. :unhappy:

    Thanks for your suggestions and prompt reply...sent off the e-mail request...any idea on the time frame for a reply or will we get one? How will we know if it actually gets changed? Thank you all again!

    Did you also want to advise the poster how long s/he should wait for a change to be reflected on the status site AFTER emailing NROTC?

    The selection office checks the applications box. They get 100's of emails to change schools and update information a day, so I am not sure how long it will take.
