    If anyone on this forum is interesting in enrolling in an ROTC program at Carnegie-Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh, or any other colleges in the Pittsburgh area, I can be of some help. I gradudated from Carnegie-Mellon's AFROTC program and retired from the AF three years ago.

    I can tell you that Carnegie-Mellon no longer has its own AFROTC or AROTC units. Cadets now enroll in AFROTC or AROTC through the University of Pittsburgh. It's not a big hassle since the schools are only about 4 blocks away from each other. The good news is that Carnegie Mellon has added an NROTC unit and it seems to be doing very well.

    I've also learned a lot from reading postings on this site. I have a selfish interest in this in that my 9th grade son has already expressed an interest in serving as a military officer.

    Good luck to all and thank you. I'll be glad to help in any way I can although my knowledge base is a little dated.

    Thanks for the offer AFROTC_86GRAD. My daughter has applied to the University of Pittsburgh AFROTC (she has been accepted into the college) and the NROTC unit at Carnegie Mellon.

    We have completed the apps and have finished the interviews, so at this point we are "just" waiting for a decision. Can you help with that? :smile:

    Outstanding News - Congrats

    That's great news about your daughter. I have two brothers that graduated from Pitt's engineering school and can attest that it is excellent. It's consistently in the nation's top 25 for the engineering and sciences.

    I wish I could help in the selection process. But, I'm a little long in tooth for them to listen to me.

    Congrats again and best of luck to your daughter. You must be very proud of her.
