I want to start out by thanking everyone for answering so many questions of mine over the last two years. I finally decided to post my own questions since I couldn't find enough answers to our specific situation. My son went back and forth for a few years between applying to a SA and applying for NROTC. My husband went to USNA, but ultimately my son decided NROTC was the way to go for him. He finished his application in October and received a call last night from his recruiter that he qualified or was selected (second hand information from my son!!) for an ISR and will interview next week with a Captain. I haven't found a lot of answers about the ISR, but it sounds promising. I've seen the contract and read some posts about it, but I still don't know enough. My understanding is that the Captain will decide if he is granted a scholarship and that he doesn't go before the board? Is this accurate? How often does this interview result in a scholarship? Or is it still a longshot? Thank you so much for any information!
