    Marjasse,

    I recommend you read the following from NCSU for details on the process...

    http://naval.dasa.ncsu.edu/sites/na...sitors/Scholarship application info-2013F.pdf

    Here is an excerpt:

    "Scholarship selection boards for the Navy meet about a dozen or more times (depending on the total number of applications) throughout the year with the first board usually convening in late August/early September. Marine Corps scholarship selection boards are held in November and February. Each board will review approximately 500 applications and they are reviewed in the order in which they are received. For this reason, you want to make every effort to have all of your application complete by early August so that you will be reviewed as early as possible. By August, there are usually 2,000 to 3,000 applications completed so if you’re just finishing in the September timeframe, you may not be reviewed until several months later. The selection board “scores” all of the applications it reviews based on everything contained in the application and then selects the top hundred or so highest scoring applications. Those not selected are automatically rolled to the next board which would meet about a month later and select another hundred or so applications. In this manner, about 1,800 to 1,900 students will ultimately be selected over the course of the year (the last board meets in April) out of the roughly 8,000 to 10,000 that apply. This represents around a 20 percent acceptance rate, though it varies by year."

    thank you for all that information. That was so helpful! Where did you find it? Does complete application mean all the references and other references have been contacted or just our part done

    Complete means just that. All portions of the application, including references, are done. Your application will not be board ready until everything is received.
