    Is there a current "list" of NROTC units with available spots. My son a has 4 year NROTC scholarship, did not get into his first college choice but did get into his second but their unit is currently full and he is "wait listed". He also got into his third and fourth college choices but the status of their unit's head count is currently unclear. Rather than wait for an opening that may not come at schools where he is accepted we want to explore what schools have openings and inquire about a late admission. Does anyone have any knowledge of this "list" and where/if it can be found?

    These are not up to date! You must have been placed outside of your top 5? (These were only available for specific students that were emailed placed outside their top 5 school choices) These have definitley changed.

    Do not consider this a current list!

    Sorry about that, I was not aware, but I deleted the post to avoid any confusion and/or problems.

    Likewise, son not accepted at first choice but assigned there. Has requested transfer of MO scholarship to another school, but received letter yesterday that it was "not approved" and he has been waitlisted for that unit. Our understanding is that this is typical while requests are worked.

    Meanwhile, he has applied to other schools that still are accepting applications and may have open spots in their NROTC units. My question is: How do we add to or update the list of schools so Pensacola knows better where to place him?

    The original list of five schools on his scholarship app was submitted so long ago that a lot has changed in terms of acceptances and preferences. He tried to update that through the recruiter's office in December, when he had a better idea of preferences, but was told to wait until he found out about the scholarship.
