    Could someone that has been accepted to or has attended college with an NROTC Scholarship or the NROTC College Program please post a list of academic and extracurricular achievements (such as grades, test scores, athletics, clubs, extracurricular activities and positions, etc.)? Also, could you post whether you were accepted into the program as Navy Option or Marine Corps Option? I feel as if I couldn't get into the U.S. Naval Academy on what I have done in high school, so far, so I want to see if there's a chance that I could be selected for NROTC. Thank you very much.

    Often times getting an NROTC scholarship can be more competitive than getting in to the Academy, due to the number of students who apply.

    Marine Option looks heavily at physical fitness - would recommend trying to get 285 and above, or really close too it.
    While not appointed to Naval Academy, DS very happy to be awarded MO NROTC.

    depends. NROTC doesn't appear to have any Geographic issues as the Academy does (where a stronger candidate from a competitive district can fail to be appointed and a less qualified applicant from a less competitive district can). However, within NROTC there are Battalions much harder to get a scholarship applied to than others.
