    I haven's seen any NROTC Nurse Option scholarships reported. Are there any candidates out there who earned one this year or have been made aware that they didn't?

    I was told by a commander for the medical group that 11 scholarships have been awarded and the last board met on the week of 7 April, will award 8 more. The timeline for these awards I was told would be potentially this week through next week. So far it doesn't look like it is happening this week! Really astonishing to me that it can take this long to award 19 nurse scholarships.

    Good luck!

    This nine month wait has been agonizingly long. I can't know where I'm going to college until I find out if I am awarded one of the nurse scholarships and the deposit deadline is May 1!!

    My dad called down to Florida and spoke to someone who said the Admiral has signed off on the final selections and they will have them posted "by Monday or Tues". The woman he spoke to wouldn't give any info about who was selected.

    Just when DD had gotten excited about Plan B, the Nurse Option scholarship came through! DD's scholarship is to Marquette University. Any other NROTC nurses at Marquette? Congratulations to all!

    Congrats MacFam (and JWNAVY).

    DD award is to Marquette as well. She has a tough decision now as she was awarded AROTC nursing as well a month ago. We have not had time to visit Marquette or the other 4 on her NROTC list as we didn't have time. Now with the award just a few days before May 1, there is too much going on to visit Marquette in the next few days.
