    I'm a new member and the parent of a prospective NROTC scholarship recipient. I'm not familiar with the terminology but my son applied to the USNA and was not given an appointment. He did, however, receive a 4yr NROTC scholarship but was not admitted to his #1 school. He requested a transfer to a school to which he was admitted but we've not heard anything from the NROTC or the requested transfer unit. I'm hoping to find some information on this forum on whether there are any next steps he should take as the May 1 university acceptance deadline approaches.

    No next steps with regard to the transfer that I can recommend other than perhaps contacting the unit he's hopes to transfer to in order to get some insight.

    I would recommend being prepared to Fedex deposits to the school he hopes to transfer to and also the school which he would prefer to attend on his own dime if they are different. Hopefully the latter would have an NROTC unit he can attend as a college programmer.

    EDIT: One other thing you can try is to PM P-Flying17 who may also be able to provide some insight on this. She's on the inside and because she is so busy may not be able to view the forum, but I know she responds to PMs when possible.

    Thanks, I think that's what we'll need to do. Appreciate the help and I'll try the PM.
