    I have a bunch of questions about reapplying, so please, bare with me :wink:

    -I will be in college next year, hopefully on an ROTC scholarship (If March Board comes up a success). Does this mean that the candidate portal will be any different? The reccomendations from teachers, would they still be the high school teachers, or college professors? Would I take another set of SATs? ACTs? Can I get a nomination through ROTC Battalion?

    Thank you! :biggrin:

    Helpful Hints on Re-Applying:
    - you will need to reapply for a nomination.
    - join ROTC at your college. Not only does this give you great military training but also makes you eligible for a ROTC nomination. If you have a QNS letter (Qualified but Not Selected), showing that to your ROTC unit may be helpful in getting a scholarship.
    - If you join ROTC, consider SMP (Simultaneous Membership Program). Benefits: Great additional military training and experience, earn Reserve/Guard pay and benefits in addition to your ROTC allowances, and you will also be eligible for the soldier nomination if recommended by your commander.
    - retake and improve your SAT/ACT scores.
    - complete your file early
    - send in your 1st semester of your Freshman year, take Math, English, Science, History and ROTC and make A's. Send in your 1st Semester transcript as soon as it is available.
