    Hope to find someone out there that can offer insight to this.

    DS was awarded the full NROTC Scholarship a couple of weeks ago at the Navy Recruiting District Headquarters. He signed the paperwork as did the CO.

    Some confusion on what happens next.....

    When will he receive official notification from the Navy along with school assignment? He was told that since he is in so early, he will likely get his first choice school. Seems to be some grayness on what happens next. We were told that he doesn't actually go to the NROTC Board in Pensacola since he was picked under the ISR program, and then someone said his kit does go there and gets rubber stamped in the first Board.

    Can anyone out there offer some insight as to the process? We are anxiously awaiting the official written notification. NROTC Website still says app is with the local recruiting District.

    If I recall correctly, out of 1st Board a list of Awardees is determined. Then a second step occurs outside and just after the Board where admins at the NETC match the Awardees with their school choices. I assume then that the ISR awardees are matched to their college either with, or in front of, the 1st Board Awardees.

    I expect dunninla's surmise is correct. Doesn't make sense to fire up the group that matches awardees to schools early, even if it's possible to do so. At least that's how I would run things! :biggrin:

    grevar: I know that the award and school selection are two separate processes and assume dunninla has it correct. This means a fairly quick answer but could be 35-45-60 days out. Still very early in the normal cycle - civilian or ROTC.

    I am sure you guys are on top of this, but you should probably be working the applications at the schools you had on your application. NROTC school selection doesn't mean you gain automatic acceptance to the university. That too, is an independent process.

    Typically (if there is such a thing) most universities won't release their early addmissions till the late fall timeframe. So there will still be some anxious months ahead.

    Good luck!

    Thanks! Yes, he is on top of that also. Already applied to his top choice schools. Also completely done with his USNA and USCGA apps

    Thanks for the info and encouragement
