    I've recently received an NROTC scholarship (currently a 4/C in the college program). Does anyone know if I receive an appointment after my 3/C year in NROTC if I would have to pay back my NROTC scholarship? I also have to opportunity to attend CORTRAMID this Summer and I was wondering if this would carry any weight in my application.

    You do not have to pay back your NROTC scholarship.

    No payback.
    Cortramid not so much, but your NROTC experience will enhance your application to USNA.

    My DS applied to USNA last year (senior in HS). Nomination, but no Appointment. Got a 4 yr NROTC scholarship to a Senior Military College. Achieved a 3.8 GPA first semester in Mechanical Engineering (B in English, A in Calc, Chem, Engineering, Naval Science). Re-applied to USNA. Wait listed.

    DS is wait listed for class of 2020. He received a 4 yr NROTC scholarship. He is considering declining the NROTC scholarship in order to play football at a school which does not have a NROTC program (they do have ROTC but he is not interested). He still intends to re-apply to the class of 2021. Does anyone have an idea if declining the scholarship will hurt his chances for an appointment to the class of 2021?

    I don't think it will, but it's how you position things in your essays and interviews. Best to talk with your BGO and better yet your acadmissions counselor on areas to improve your application. For re-applicants... Grades with a Plebe like schedule are the most important thing.
