Default NROTC Board Dates

Here's what it says in the NROTC SCHOLARSHIP GUIDE, Navy Recruiting District, Phoenix. Another poster referred to this guide to assist with information about schools that offer free room and board when scholarships are awarded. It says they aren't the actual dates, but they must be close!

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Dates are not actual board dates. The dates are listed to aid the coordinator in explaining the selection process to applicants.

- 2 to 3 weeks for results to be published.
- Normal selection board consists of 450 packages.
- First 7 selection boards will be conducted before Christmas Holidays.

Board Dates

FY09A: 24 – August - 2009
FY09B: 28 – September - 2009
FY09C: 13 - October - 2009
FY09D: 2 - November - 2009
FY09E: 16 - November - 2009
FY09F: 7 - December - 2009
FY09G: 11 - January – 2010
FY09H: 25 - January – 2010

Deadline for Submission of application: 1 – February - 2010
FY09I: 9 - February - 2010
FY09J: 2 - March - 2010
FY09K: 16 - March - 2010
FY09L: 6 - April – 2010

Just got off the phone with my coordinator, and he said he hadn't heard anything about a cancellation of the boards, but he did tell me this:

"My commanding officer did tell me that they are going to go through ALL the boards till like freakin December, so th earliest you will hear back is probably gonna be Janury, so don't really worry about it. I'll let you know if I hear anything though."

Straight from his mouth. So, either way, we still probably won't hear back for a while.

Let me get this straight. Your Commanding Officer told you that the NROTC program is going to wait until after all the 2010 boards meet and select the scholarship recipients before notifying the recipients that they have been awarded a scholarship?

Between this theory and the one about the Navy not being able to find enough "volunteers" to man the selection boards, I'm beginning to think that there is a serious lack of communication between the various entities within the NROTC program.

I was actually starting to feel the same way...it seems as if there are multiple theories of why the board is not meeting, which begs the question why are there so many theories?

Thanks for the clarification. Is your scholarship coordinator the same NCO that helped motivate you to "hurry up" and complete your application because you definitely want to be done by August 1st to meet the first board? I know my son has been hearing that since May.

Nah, all my stuff was done by the end of June along with the interview, I just had to wait for my school to send everything out. He didn't really hurry me, because I had nothing to hurry with. Haha

AG,

What will you do if your DS goes Navy? Who will you root for at the AF V Navy game... will you root Navy and while your wife roots AF?

Which branch of service my son should enter is (as you can imagine) a hot topic of debate in our home. If he chooses Navy (and the Navy chooses him) then the Fall season in our house will be very entertaining. His sister has already informed him that if he goes Navy or Army that she can't fix him up with any of her girlfriends because their standards in men are too high to associate with soldiers or sailors. So it begins.....
