    I am the father of a Junior who is very interested in NROTC and was told this is the forum to get answers.
    My son is on Varsity CC and Track, plays trumpet in the Marching Band and Wind Ensemble while earning high honors taking a mixture of CP, Honors and AP classes.
    He has toured the Naval Academy but still favors ROTC.
    Since we have a few months before the process begins in earnest we both will be searching the prior threads before we get into asking specifics.
    Thanks!
    TurpinDad

    Welcome!

    If your son hasn't done so, he should seek out leadership positions in school and extracurricular activities.

    Hi TurpinDad and Nathan. Welcome to the forum.

    TurpinDad -- I agree about the leadership positions. I tried to get DS to seek leadership positions at school, but he chose to spend most of his time in leadership at church, which counted for a LOT in terms of his personal growth, but didn't count for much, if anything, in terms of academy points.

    PIF - the personal growth factor will be there long after he graduates. Consider it time well spent!
