    Any experience with doing NROTC at Embry-Riddle or perhaps NROTC scholarship to Embry-Riddle? How was it?

    Hoping to visit

    My nephew loves their web site, and he hopes to visit. I know nothing about this school or their NROTC units.

    Has anyone attended ERAU and participated in their NROTC unit?

    Thanks for the information on your visit.

    I had a great friend who went to Embry Riddle (Daytona Beach) on an NROTC Scholarship. He absolutely loved it. Always talking about the beach and the glass cockpits in the planes and this and that.

    I have just been checking their website out, I wouldn't mind going there :shake:

    Might suggest it to my son when he wakes up in the morning.

    We know a student who is in his second year at Embry through AFROTC. He is very happy with the university and the ROTC program.

    I'm a 1/C MIDN at ERAU. The school is good but difficult, especially for engineering majors. There's a very limited amount of scholarship slots though. I received my scholarship in November, but didn't have it applied to the school until May when they expanded the amount of spots. We have a very high percentage of students who apply for flight spots getting them, and we are known for being stricter than many other ROTC units. We do have a higher attrition rate than the academy; however, most of those are non-scholarship students who can't afford the school anymore. If you have any other specific questions, let me know.

    What is the percentage and how does it compare to other NROTC units?

    They have over 100 planes available so I am guessing pretty much anyone with funding will get to fly. I would be interested to know for sure though.

    Expensive but was enjoyed

    My oldest spent his last 2 years of 4 year degree here. He loved it. He was able to get scholarships and loans as it seems it was about ?45,000 per year. He then became a military pilot and loved that too!
    It seems to suit certain people. He liked it because it was aeronautical intensive from day one for him.

    Until this past year, we sat at around 90-95%. This semester, we had two who had pilot as their first choice who got NFO instead. Because so many of us are in technical degree majors, and most of the rest are flight students here, we have a leg-up as far as flying goes.

    What flight curriculum/flight degree will NROTC pay for? You have to list a major or major type to get a scholarship and I don't recall anything like that on the approved major lists so I'm guessing a NROTC student in one of the flying curriculums is paying for that out of pocket.
