    Hello all. I am just about to finish my junior year and want to apply to the Army ROTC and Marine ROTC officer programs. I understand there is a board that meets in September 2010 for both. I am currently training to receive a high score on the PFT and would like more time to train. What is the latest time I can submit my initial application this summer and leave enough time to complete the interview and make the September boards? Thank you.

    Get started ASAP

    Have you taken the SAT? Not sure if you're gonna qualify completely if this is the end of JR year, but get all the paperwork in motion now!

    The USMC has two boards December and March; and the call December the "early Board". March is called "regular".

    Good luck,
    Bob McMahon

    Theoretically, you could wait a long time. Maybe a couple weeks before the board. But if you had the wrong dates, and/or Cadet Command lost any paperwork you could be set back.

    I would get it done ASAP and then take it again closer to the board and resubmit it.

    Get the application completed as soon as you can. It is possible, and some candidates will fully complete it over the summer having - taken and received good SAT's, sent in their transcripts and recommendations. They generally get them prior to leaving school in the spring.
    Also they are well prepared for their PFT and don't need extra time to "train" for it.
    This is what you are competing against.
    The early bird gets the worm.
