    Okay so I checked online today and I got a 4 year to USF. I put UF as my number 1 and that is the only school I actually applied to out of the 5 I put down because if I didn't get the scholarship to UF I wasn't going to do NROTC. It also said that you can change your detachment but you have to send in a request for it. Is there anyway I could change it to UF or is Navy really strict on this stuff?

    I would bet UF is already full and that is why you didn't get your number one.
    I got my number one, but did not get into that school. Hopefully I get into the consortium school. Contact Pensacola and see if UF is full - if not then I think you can switch.

    If you were not assigned to your number 1 choice, it is because the unit is currently full. You could ask for a transfer to UF.
    As students get acceptances to (or rejections from) schools, lists may get freed up. For example, if a student has been offered an NROTC scholarship to UF but does not get accepted,to UF, a slot may free up. There might be a lot of waiting. . .

    Follow the directions on the status page, as well as contacting the recruiter at the unit you want to transfer the scholarship to.
