    Hi everyone, I'm a high school senior who applied for an NROTC scholarship this past September, and was just wondering how long applicants normally wait before learning of their decision. On the NROTC status page, it indicates that my application is in the final selection phase, as it is at the NSTC selection/placement office in Pensacola. Also, I recently requested a change for my top choice college where I would like to utilize the scholarship. Will this slow things down at all?

    I sort of remember someone posting that last year they looked at that same status screen (final selection/no decision made) from September to February.

    My son is waiting also.

    Not quite sure if it will slow you down or not...but my son changed his school list also via email. They replied immediately that the list was updated, but the list online did not change. They assured him that the list was updated but would not be reflected online.

    Son applied Sept/Oct and has not yet heard back. He received AROTC and AFROTC scholarships this last month. I'm sure things will start moving now that Early Decsions are in, and the holidays are over.

    Thanks, I also got an immediate email but saw no change on my status report. It's good to know that this is common with other people.

    My daughter is also waiting.

    Scuttlebutt has it that once you have been before the selection board, your status screen changes. Hers now has a bunch of her info, SAT Scores/School Choices/etc. and a statement that says "No decision has been made on your application" , which I take to mean that she went before the board and they declined to award her a scholarship at that point.

    Well, this is strange.....
    Son's application with NROTC is in the '''we have received your application"...."No decision has been made" status....
    He updated his college list to reflect new choices and received email from 3 different sources that it was updated. 1 email said that the changes would not be reflected online.

    So, this afternoon the status page reflected his new choices and the the 'application status' is now blank. The 'No decision has been made' sentence is now gone.

    hmmmm very curious, and I thnk board date is coming up next week.

    Same Message

    Singaporemom we received the same message (or should I say non-message?) today! Application status went blank. It almost sent my already frazzled mind over the edge. On Navy For Moms a mom announced that her son's status had updated today to "Congratulations...." blah blah blah. If I didn't think my son was so qualified and deserving I wouldn't be so worked up about this. Anyway... no news is not so good right now! My son also applied the same time frame as yours

    After I read this post I went to my status page and low and behold there were my new school choices. However, on my application the 'No decision has been made' sentence still stands. My guess is they're either about to update your son's status, or it was a glitch after they updated his schools.

    Yes singaporemom, http://www.navyformoms.com/group/rotc/forum is the link. I didn't think this scholarship mattered to me that much but I am proving myself to be a bit of a nervous nelly. We are going to have 3 in college next year, 2 at Notre Dame, so the Navy scholarship would be wonderful. Nice to know there are others out there like me (constantly cruising for information) and they are on Navy For Moms (fine for dads too I would think).

    Singaporemom my oldest daughter is at University of Texas, then next daughter is at Notre Dame... no chance of her doing ROTC. My son applying for the NROTC scholarship just received his letter of acceptance to Notre Dame over holiday break. With 2 there the costs would be astronomical. I went to college on an Army ROTC scholarship and my husband went into the Navy, nuclear engineer on a ballistic missile sub, after he graduated from Notre Dame. We stressed the family tradition of service and our son is enthusiastic... wants subs like his dad. We'll have to see how it turns out... otherwise LOTS of loans!

    I saw this forum advertised in a magazine recently and have been meaning to check it out. Now that our son has received his Navy ROTC scholarship, I feel worthy of joining. :wink: Thanks for the link, Lesrunmore!!!
