I am interested in applying for a NROTC scholarship in case USNA doesn’t work out but I have a few questions. 1. I think it was decided that NROTC was NOT centralized, so does this mean I will not be able to do my interview at my local university (USC for me)? I will also have a different interview than my AFROTC interview (if I choose to pursue one) correct? 2. Statistically speaking, I know that ROTC and USNA commission about the same number of Marines (in regard to total commissions). However what are the details of that system? For example the AFA statistically commissions more pilots, but universities can work with you more in depth to ensure you are commissioned as a pilot. Who commissions more Marines as far as those who want to verses those who are? Who turns down more midshipmen? 3. What is the deal with being assured a Marine Option in NROTC and a pilot guarantee? How hard are they to get? Is it more of a “sure thing” to be a Marine pilot through NROTC? Will the USNA training better prepare me for TBS essentially evening out that guarantee? I know that’s a lot of questions but any help would be great.
