    Just wondering, anyone told they were going their package was going before the November boards and if so did you hear anything back yet?

    For that matter, even October boards? I know the Air Force boards don't meet until December so all's quiet from those folks but Navy board has already met and it seems overall pretty quiet as well, with a few exceptions.

    just curious...

    When in November did the NROTC board meet?
    People have heard back from a NROTC board that met in early October but how many times the "board" has already met is a Navy secret as are the future dates the board is scheduled to meet.:cool:

    I think Nov 9th was the board date I heard his package was being submitted for. We were told it was the 3rd board, the second being in October which we just missed at the time...

    Who did you hear this from?
    If the second board was in October, when was the first?
    Thanks.

    I also heard from my local coordinator ( I can't attest to his reliability) that there was a late October Board which was the 2nd review board. The reason why I don't know if my information is so credible is because on this forum there was only 1 "round" of people who reported getting scholarships, not 2. Unless it's a coincidence that nobody on this board was selected during board #2...

    I guess It could make sense that the November board met a couple weeks ago. It would have met just in time for applicants to hear back around Thanksgiving time- I've heard that's a time that they've let applicants know in the past.

    Who knows, like I keep on saying, It's ALL speculation.

    My son was called today by his local coordinator and told he was given a "$180,000 scholarship" to his #1 school. Just checked the website and it shows his 4 year scholarship to MIT! :thumb:

    Now all he has to do is get in! :rolleyes: He did apply early action though, so hopefully he'll know something soon!

    Now for the hard question - obviously if he gets rejected, he calls NROTC and asks for his second choice school. If he gets in, he's all set. But what if he gets "deferred" or "waitlisted" or whatever they happen to call it there? Anyone had any experience with that? How long do you wait before you lose your chances at another school/slot for the NROTC scholarship?

    Thanks!

    Congrats! Did his DoDMERB status happen to change within the past day or two prior to you getting the call?

    Nope - I just checked it now and it still doesn't show NROTC on his Dodmerb status - just USNA and USAFA, which have shown as qualified since July.

    gotcha. so much for that theory DodMERB was a reliable trip wire a decision was made by a ROTC board. Do you know if his package went to an October board or are you sure it was the November board?

    He's had everything in and complete since mid-September so it could have been either. I don't know how we'd know!

    Your coordinator would have had to have told you I suppose. Son's NROTC website finally showed some new activity yesterday but still didn't say if he had a scholarship/school selection yet. DoDMERB, USAFA, USNA and WP websites haven't changed in weeks either. One MOC won't give interview results out until January, another won't say when the results will go out and the third MOC hasn't even had interviews yet so this is a typical hurry up and wait government operation for sure. ;-)

    We're in the same stage for the nominations. Son had both senator interviews in October but doubt we'll hear anything until mid-December, based on my older son's experience last year. However, our congressman's office had told us interviews were Dec. 11, but then got voted out of office. Meanwhile, we received a privacy act waiver to transfer his "open file" to the new congressman. I don't know if that means they're not doing the interviews and just waiting and letting the new congressman handle everything in January? :eek: Or if they're still going to try to get them done before then, but it won't be official so they need to do this? Last year my older son heard from them mid-December as well, but his interview was a bit earlier. Hoping to know something before Christmas at least!

    Son's Dodmerb site hasn't changed since mid-July. He did call his NROTC coordinator a few weeks ago and all they told him at that point was that everything was complete and submitted to the board, but I'm pretty sure they didn't know what board he would be going to or when.

    I agree it's a hard question. You may want to consider putting a safety school
    as your NROTC #1. Even if he gets deferred to mid March and then accepted, he could still switch back to MIT Unit since it doesn't fill up. Do you know when his #2 NROTC school generally fills up?

    Thanks Aglages! I am not sure when it changed, but we checked the status Saturday morning. No change on Dodmerb.

    Thanks for the information sgmom! Do you recall when the previous time was that you checked the NROTC site? Just trying to get an idea of when they might have released the results.
