    I want to know the usual time it takes between the start of application for the nrotc scholarship navy option to the point where someone receives an officer interview. I have been waiting since December.

    Aren't the interview reports due in 2 days? You might want to call the scholarship office directly to see what is going on instead of emailing your recruiter.

    For general information about the NROTC program or the scholarship:

    Yea, something's not right here. The deadline is looming. You have to find someone fast to have any chance of getting in this year.

    Place a call to the PMS of the NROTC unit of the college on your list closest to home and explain the situation. Hopefully they can get you interviewed quickly.

    Yes the deadline is sometime this week. My DS had some issues with getting the officer to respond and set up an interview. Mostly because by the time DS was done school and practice the Officers day was done, so he could never speak with him. Reluctantly I intervened and was able to set up the interview for this week.

    Professor of Military Science - the military personnel assigned to ROTC units. Contact your nearest NROTC unit to ask for an interview.

    Okay. I was wondering, do they decide whether or not to grant you an interview after considering you're medical records? my recruiter said that's probably why I haven't gotten a call. He said if they disqualify me before they schedule the interview, then i wont get a call.

    How would they have seen your records? You don't usually go to DODMERB until after receiving the scholarship.

    varying degrees on knowledge in recruiters.....any active duty Navy person (more senior the better) can give you an interview....there are forms that need to be filled out and returned to the recruiter.....my neighbor did DS interview. He was an active duty Commander.

    @ethaaan123 have you tried contacting him by phone? How about the national scholarship office?

    When you say "recruiter" are you speaking about the local recruiting office? Is he an enlisted recruiter or a NROTC specialist?

    The DoDMERB physical is independent of the selection process, so that shouldn't be a factor.

    As aquafox suggested above... call the scholarship office. You could call the PNS (Professor of Naval Science in your case) office at the unit to get information, but they may not know of your application since the unit isn't notified until placement.

    You could check your portal for hints on what's going on, but ultimately you need to contact a person over the phone to see what's going on.

    Most enlisted recruiters are trained to primarily seek enlisted candidates, not officers.

    Listen to Rocatlin's advice and call the scholarship office or contact the PMS at Auburn (or nearest NROTC college).
