    Hi,

    My counselor received an email from my NROTC coordinator today that said that because my profile is so competitive they are considering giving me a scholarship notification before the boards meet. I didn't get to see the email so I'm not 100% sure of its content but this is what my counselor said.

    Does anyone know if this is possible for something like this to happen or if this is just a recruiting ploy/tactic?

    Thanks.

    Sounds like an ISR. Use the search function and plug in ISR for lots of discussions. I am a little confused about timeline. Sounds like you are a 2021 applicant? They just released the last 2020 Board and I don't believe the 2021 application is even open yet?

    Thanks! Will do.

    I am a 2021 applicant and the 2021 Application is open. Just for Navy though.

    The 2nd to last National Navy option board results are being released today. The final board just concluded this week, and results will be released by the end of next week.

    Yes, the 2021 NROTC application opened earlier this month. However, a student cannot be OFFICIALLY offered a scholarship and placed at a unit until the boards start meeting late September/early October. ISR scholarships are chosen by Recruiting District Commanding Officers, but they still need to get rubber stamped further up the chain. So, an offer may be extended, but it's not official until it's official. It certainly is a real thing though, and is often used to nail down applicants that the district believes are strong contenders.
