We are relatively new members to the Forum and appreciate the wealth of information provided by the members. DS applied for the Marine Option NROTC Scholarship. Until today, the portal indicated at Marine District pending a decision. Today, the information was changed The NSTC Selection/Placement Office has received your application. Missing Items All required items have been processed. Selection Status No decision has been made on your application. I understand the process as follows: District will hold Early (Nov) Board and sends results to MCRC by 1 Dec. Once MCRC approves results, they are forwarded to NSTC for school placement. Is it a good sign the application is now at NSTC or routine process?
