    I am a freshman at a public university this year. As a senior in high school last year, I applied for an NROTC scholarship, but I did not receive one. In order to reapply, do I have to be in ROTC this year off scholarship or do I just apply again and I would enter next year? If I don't have to be enrolled in ROTC, do I just follow the same application process again and they just assume that I am applying for a 3 year scholarship?

    All depends on how many college credits u have. If ur under 30, go ahead and redo the application the same as the first time.

    I walked into my school with 23 hours from AP courses, which is what I have now at the time of my reapplication. But, by the end of this semester I will have 38 hours, as I am taking 15 hours right now. By the end of next semester, I should have 54 hours bearing I get into the courses I plan on taking. Suggestions?

    If you plan to reapply for the National NROTC Scholarship as a freshman Do Not join the campus NROTC unit.

    Others will explain a lot more about why.

    I'm a bit confused. So I should just proceed with the application like I did last year?

    well, you need to verify this with NETC, but this is what I learned from a few posts over the past year:

    1) Do NOT join NROTC this year
    2) Re-apply with all the other HS Seniors just as though you were a HS senior (Application, Interview, etc.)
    3) Take tough core courses (esp. Calculus) and do well in them 1st Semester.

    Now, if you're interested in applying to the Naval Academy, the strategy is very different:

    1) Join NROTC, or ROTC if NROTC is not at your school
    2) Take some of the same core classes taken by Mid 4/C at Annapolis: Calculus, Chemistry, History, English, and do well in them 1st semester
    3) Get a Nom from your NROTC commander
