    Applying as a freshman in college

    Not really sure where to begin. When I was younger and up until about sophomore year I was obsessed with going to either Notre Dame or the Naval Academy. And then things started to cool. ND kind of fell off of the map because I didn't really want to go to a school that was 85%+...

    Taking Calc based Physics at Community College?

    would this fulfill my requirement for 2 semester worth of calculus based physics? (I know I'd have to take two classes.) I would like to do this for a couple of different reasons. If I get the scholarship (No, I have not received the scholarship yet. However, my local CC sent out a mailing...

    Help!!! Out of shape, but would still like to apply!

    Thanks! You are correct, I need to keep this in mind. The Army is a such a huge branch, there are tons of people working for them and I can’t judge it based on one experience. Especially when the people there are used to talking to people looking to enlist and all that. My friend had a...

    Help!!! Out of shape, but would still like to apply!

    Thanks for the advice guys. I think I'll cancel my meeting with the Army guy for next week. I'll just call or email the PMS at a school near me. thanks

    Help!!! Out of shape, but would still like to apply!

    Yeah, I just wanted to start there. The Navy guys got me in contact with a guy that helped me . I have a feeling the Army guy I'm meeting with Monday is going to talk about the reserves and getting my parents to sign when I'm 17. :/ Whatever, I'll see what they say. I was not impressed...

    Deferring A Year

    That sounds really cool. I'm thinking about doing NCCC with Americorps, but I'd probably only do it if ROTC does not work out with the school I want to go to or whatever. But I really don't want to go through the college app process again...

    Help!!! Out of shape, but would still like to apply!

    They just said that there would be a board in December, they did not mention a date for December or the future board. They just said that there will be a board every month until April. December + January + February + March + April = 5. Or maybe I interpreted wrong, maybe they said about...

    Help!!! Out of shape, but would still like to apply!

    Ok, so I went to visit an Army and a Navy recruiter today. I went to the Army one first and the guy first acted like he didn’t know what ROTC was. Of course he had heard of ROTC but he said I had to apply to each school's individual ROTC battalion and that was how I would get in (which I...

    Help!!! Out of shape, but would still like to apply!

    All right that is good to hear. I think I am going to sack up and try to apply for the next board. This way I will at least be available for two board cycles. I believe someone posted in another thread that the deadline for ALL things to be in by is December 27, 2010. And I guess I have to...

    Help!!! Out of shape, but would still like to apply!

    At this point, what would be better, train a couple months for the next (and last) AROTC board and have a decent shot at passing th fitness test. But what if my schools fill up their slots.... Or cram for this board and try to get everything by this December and possibly not get the minimum...

    Scholarship Application Help!

    Yeah, I a little late to the ball game as well. And I think I'm kind of screwed. My grades and SATs are fine but my fitness score will not be good. I am working on it, but I don't think I will make the December Board for AROTC....which means I'll only have one board left. And all of the...

    Help!!! Out of shape, but would still like to apply!

    Thanks. I'm going to try and make it to the recruiter sometime this week. Yeah, I know being teir 1/2 would help a ton, and you have to be really good to get a tier 3 scholarship...but qualititative Econ is the only thing I am remotely interested in on the 1/2 list. It's cool that BU...

    Help!!! Out of shape, but would still like to apply!

    Ok, I just noticed something, I might be interested in a Tier 2 major!!! This would really help Quantitative Economics Not sure how it is different that regular Econ (which I am interested in majoring in) but I'm guessing it is more math based and a google search has it clumped...

    Help!!! Out of shape, but would still like to apply!

    I figured they would probably bug me about enlisting, but last year a rep from NROTC came to my school and he said he was from the local office and to come with him with any questions or help with the application. Wait, so if I get the Navy option scholarship, I won't have to pass the...
