    When will the application for the 2011 scholarship year open? Also does it make a big selection difference if you choose a Tier 1 major vs a Tier 2 major? Thanks!

    I have a sheet of paper somewhere that lists the dates for Army, Navy, and Air Force ROTC scholarships for the prospective class of 2015. Its either March 1 or April 1, I'm pretty sure its April though. I will look for it in the morning and post it. As far as the tiers go, I am clueless and would also love to know the answer.

    So I am looking at the application checklist right now, I want to make sure I can get ready for some of these things before the application process actually starts for NROTC ^_^

    First, the references that you need for NROTC applications, it says you would need to provide contact info "of a math teacher (nurse option applicants provide a science teacher), and another teacher, counselor coach or employer to complete the 2 required evaluations"

    I think the wording of that was pretty weird; is it saying they would need two recs, one from a math teacher and the other from any of those sources? Also for AFROTC and AROTC scholarships, who would you need to get your recommendation letters from?

    For volunteer history, I am planning to list the school clubs I am involved in and then write something like "various activities" or name the organizations we usually do the most work for. Would I need to get signatures to verify my hours either from the event coordinators or from the club advisor? I am concerned that I would have trouble finding club advisors or the event supervisors.

    Big thanks to anyone who can help answer!!

    You don't have to have anyone sign-off on your hours for NROTC, they assume you are being honest.

    Tier 1 vs Tier 2 major is not a huge difference in selection terms. However, I selected a Tier 2 major when I was awarded the scholarship last year and I wish I had selected Tier 3.

    If you have even the slightest doubt that you will not want to actually get a degree in anything in Tier 1 or Tier 2... you may be better off selecting Tier 3 and taking the chance. I know there are plenty of individuals that were selected for scholarship with Tier 3 majors with grades/test scores much worse than my own. With my experience now, I wish I had selected Tier 3. They are incredibly strict if you are attempting to switch out of your Tier (unless going up a level). So take that for what it's worth, choose the major you're actually going to want to take.
