Does USNA know whether or not an applicant is also applying for NROTC scholoarship? How would they know this? At this stage in the game, DD has no interest in attending a civilian college and says she would rather self prep at an academy prep school if it came to that and reapply. In the spring, she met up with a friend who is a mid who started out as NROTC and they applied and got accepted to USNA after two years of college. This mid told her that the NROTC route was just not "military" enough and the opportunities in the summers were not as numerous as at the academy. Those comments have really stuck in her head and she does not want to apply for NROTC. I do recall that at a parent briefing during her CVW they said that applying to NROTC will look good for her USNA application as it shows a comittment to being an officer in the Navy.
