    Can you tell me if all applicants are notified, or only those who were awarded a (National 4 Yr.) Scholarship? Do you know if all award letters were mailed yet for the Boards that just met?

    Which ROTC are you asking about, AROTC, NROTC, AFROTC, or NROTC MC Option.

    My question was ref NROTC. This is the response I received from them.... I do not knw if this has anything to do with MO:

    Calvin,
    I can't discuss when specific selection boards are held, but all applicants
    will be notified of final selection determination by the month of May. We
    are still conducting selection boards (which run twice a month from
    September until the end of April), and will notify applicants through the
    NROTC website and a letter in the mail to their home of record by May.
    Applicants can see the status of their application by logging back into o

    I expect it doesn't apply to MO. As I understand it there are 2 MO boards the 2nd being in March. Scholarships have already been announced from this board. Don't know if MO scholarships are still being awarded or not. If you haven't received a snail mail or your status has not changed then there may still be a chance. They do send 'not selected' letters, at least they did last year.

    If your asking about AROTC, the notifications have been updated and the letters sent out and received for the final board. The offers were for all scholarships 3 and 4 year. If you have not seen your status change by now and have not received a letter then you should assume you did not receive a scholarship offer for AROTC.

    So now you have heard regarding AROTC and NROTC, that just leaves someone to post about AFROTC.

    Please provide a little more info when you post so you get the correct answers back.

    As I have stated previously, DS has already accepted a 4 yr AROTC Scholarship, and will now not even consider an NROTC offer should it come at the 11th hour. My hypothetical question is, simply as a business man.....I have a son/daughter who still hasn't heard either way regarding an NROTC offer, and he/she may not hear anything until some time in May. Does the Navy realize that most college acceptance deadlines are May 1st? What's "Joe Average" supposed to do - put a deposit on all 5 schools that he's listed on his NROTC Scholarship? That could run you upwards of $500 per school. I am simply curious what the thought process is out there.....and I know someone may say "hey, it's the Navy way..." I am simply asking as a business man and a father because I may be in this situation with one of my other kids. The Navy appears to be slow as heck and may eventually miss out on some very talented young men and women.

    I believe the Scholarship notification process is over for AFROTC also. The last board met in late March with an expected release date of on/before April 13.

    Yes, they know the acceptance deadline is May 1. They do seem to move slowly. Last year we didn't get our 'sorry, you were not accepted' letter until April 20, or thereabouts. OTOH, we didn't hear about merit scholarships at #1 school until April 1+. I think part of the problem with hearing so late is us. As business folks we're used to making decisions quickly and locking plans down. Waiting is not our forte. Looking back we actually still had plenty of time left to make our decisions. Also, having plan B in place in early April helped. Seems to me that's the way the college application process works. Many top notch schools dont send acceptance letters until April 1 and most don't have financial aid decisions until then either. (although the truly outstanding athletes and students generally know much earlier).

    You still have time to wait on NROTC decision. I'm sure you won't let DS cut off his nose to spite his face. Unfortunately, as much as we want to there is no way we can hurry this. I do wish Navy was a bit quicker though. Frankly, IMHO, they should be shooting for all notifications to take place by April 1. That would put them in line with everything else.

    Kinnem, you are exactly correct...I am a business man who is used to making a decision and living with that decision once it is made. And to be quite honest, that is exactly what my son did. He rec'd a 4-yr AROTC Scholarship to his 2nd choice (which was an in-state school) and a 3-yr AD to a private school (his 4th choice). My son chose the 4-yr and he is very happy and excited with the decision that he made. He has not heard back yet from the NROTC folks, but I can tell you that the university that he will be using his AROTC scholarship is not one of his 5 NROTC Schools....and he cannot be the only kid that this is true for. So although plan B could be for him to attend any other school, there is no way that I am going to waste deposit money on any of the 5 NROTC Schools on April 20th when he may not even hear back from the Navy until mid-May...it does not make any financial sense. My concern is for other parents/kids that are waiting to hear about NROTC, or for my other kids when they are seniors in high school.
