    Same here! But either P-2 or N-1. Do you plan on buying a different pair of boots? I've heard the ones they issue aren't that great.

    I'll see when I get em. My NSC is July 12-13 so I'll have time to either break em in or decide to buy a different pair.

    Farmtownte,
    Is that list for when you first arrive on campus or for a certain training? Would it be the same for AFROTC?

    Thanks

    Zach

    Parker, this is the list that AROTC emailed all Army scholarship recips. All things from MPW are fitted during the NSC. The stuff to bring for FOW is for the training week we have before classes start.

    Howdy, my name is C.J. Flanagan and I am an upcoming S-1 sophmore and I feel like I need to pass on a little information that I learned last year to make your lives a little easier.
    yes, all uniforms are fitted at your new student conference, but they do not come home with you. Boots, one pair of low quarters, 3 or 4 tan t-shirts, boot socks, and bedding do however.
    If you get Dr. Scholls for the boots they feel much, much better and they are durable boots, you can do it for the low quarters as well, and do as they say and break both of them in or you will regret it later.
    If anybody has any questions feel free to PM me, ask any of the tough questions, and i'll answer anything you want to ask me.
