    Just got my TWE email, so that's the end of the line here.

    I don't think that I got the NROTC Marine Option scholarship either, but I'm still planning on doing NROTC, just without the scholarship. Two questions: 1. Does anybody know how to join NROTC without actually getting the scholarship? 2. Is there a NROTC unit that's better between Villanova or PITT?

    Thanks for all of the help and good luck to those who made it.

    Oh, and what's the likely hood of getting the 3-year scholarship next year if I do NROTC without the scholarship this year?

    You're in the same place I was this time last year. YES you can do NROTC WITHOUT a scholarship. I didn't think this was true until I visited my unit. It's called College Program and you literally do everything the scholarship kids do, you just don't get paid. It's been a huge blessing to me. I don't know much about the PITT unit, but I've heard the Villanova Unit is quite good. I don't think you can go wrong though, both of those schools are awesome

    My DS got his TWE this morning.....right now I feel a lot like many have but I'm not going to react off emotion. I'll just stand tall and say "it is what it is".

    This forum has been a great resource and I'd like to thank all of you. Not sure if he will try again next year or not, knowing him he will. Plan B is VT - Corp of Cadet (Engineering). Already accepted. Maybe we will see some of you there....good luck to the rest of you.

    My understanding is that Nova has a great unit and is an awesome school.

    I got my TWE this morning as well. Onto Plan B.

    Nova does have a great unit, and they've graduated 22 admirals and generals I believe - second only to USNA!

    Did all the TWEs come as emails? Were your portals updated as well?

    A classmate of my DS who also got a nomination from the same MOC was TWE'd, this morning.

    He did *NOT* get the Wait List Email on Friday.

    My DS's TWE came in this morning, also, and unfortunately while he's in school. It must be very hard to receive this life-changing news in or between classes, around your classmates....or even to arrive at school with the news so fresh. It would be a lot more respectful to candidates (that have aspired to the heights of USNA and have gone through an incredibly arduous process) if Admissions would follow the lead of other highly respected institutions and send notices late in the day!
    DS has some awesome other Plan B, C, and D options...but this news so late in the game is also an incredible disappointment nonetheless. Thanks to all the contributors for the support this forum provides, and good luck to everyone!
