    Hi! My son is a senior and has applied for the NROTC - Marine Option Scholarship. We have been anxiously waiting for MONTHS! He applied with the October boards and then again with the February boards. He's been accepted to 7 colleges (5 NROTC schools). His top picks are CU-Boulder, University of Nebraska, and Norwich. Norwich has offered him a great merit based scholarship, but his first choice school is CU-Boulder. He is currently in the DEP program and attends PT and Pool functions regularly. We are very anxious to find out if he received the scholarship - if not, he has many hard decisions to make regarding DEP, out of state schools, Marine Reserves, etc... This forum has been a great source of information.

    Good luck to everyone! What an awesome bunch of young people!

    Welcome to the forums!

    You'll find that the folks here are super and we all have a lot of fun sharing with each other. PLEASE join us!!

    As for your son's plans...Norwich...I have a "former candidate" that is a senior there now...came from the Phoenix area...thought he'd go to ASU...but Norwich...

    He has been SO happy there...I can't tell you how so! Well I could but it'd take a LOT of space here!!

    Don't let your son discount it out of hand...if he wants to 'chat' with a Norwich person, I could probably get him in touch with "my guy."

    Where to begin?

    I am the father of an incoming cadet (June of 2011). What do I need to know as a parent? Thanks in advance!:smile:

    Signed,

    Not Sure!

    Colorado is a great place! I went skiing there a few times (Winter Park).

    I hope your son gets everything he wants! He wants to be a Marine Officer? That is interesting! I know this is too early to ask (as in, he might probably change his mind...) but does he know what MOS he wants to get?
