    I've accepted the Frederick C. Branch scholarship. I've done the medical exams. I've accepted the scholarship by mail. I've been accepted to the college that the scholarship was awarded to.
    Am I supposed to be contacted by the NROTC unit of my college?
    I feel like I don't know what's going on. I don't know what classes I'm supposed to register for or when to arrive for orientation at the school.

    The unit should be in contact with you. Right now they are busy with commissioning etc. I expect they will contact you in June. However, you're more than free to contact the unit and I encourage you to do so. At the very least they can set your expectation as to when you'll hear further from them.

    +1 The OT in ROTC stands for officer training. One thing good officers have is the ablilty to gather intellengce. When you call ask if it is possible to names/e-mail of other scholarship winners, and/or some new MS-II,III, IV, the address of a college forum. Do it in a way to be helpful to the unit.

    Use this forum search to find people who are/have gone to your univeristy.

    Asking us to tell what is happening is not very useful, but asking us to help you help yourself is.

    At your school - today 5/12/2013 is graduation, yesterday was nurses pinning day.

    So not much time to worry about next year.

    Regular new students start to arrive on August 23.
