    NROTC board dates, and their deadlines, are a closely held secret. They start as early as late August/early September (usually). I would assume that your application needs to be board ready about a week prior to the first board, but that's just a guess on my part. So if you're trying to be assured of meeting the first board I would say the deadline is any day now.

    It's possible someone here may have more knowledge but I've yet to meet them. Dunninla is probably the most knowledgeable on this stuff.

    grevar,

    Trust me every yr about 5 different dates are given out by 5 different posters and they have all been told by someone that is working with them on their packets.

    If P17 lurks on this thread, they typically will then come on and ask for the name of the persons that gave out the dates. It is a big no-no for anyone to publicly announce, which means telling the candidate.

    I am not saying it isn't Aug 26th, but don't be surprised if others come on and give different dates.

    Plus, last yr. the dates came and went, and no board met. LY they didn't have to deal with sequestration either. Board members are TDY from other bases.

    As far as the deadline, if you have read the other threads, than you probably know by now even if the paperwork deadline date has not past yet, the queue is probably longer than the number of applicants they will board. Still get it in ASAP because you will be lower on the pile the longer you wait. The lower on the list, the fewer boards you will be able to meet, yet meanwhile that pot of money is being given out and highly demanded units will be filling up. Some powerhouse units can be filled by OCt.
