    Changing nrotc schools

    You should ask that question directly to the unit commanders at the schools you are applying to like we did. This forum can only give you many speculations.

    Does the portal report both SAT and ACT scores?

    Like to suggest you follow up with your local NROTC Rep once every 7-10 Days for an update. But don’t push them too much. They are under a lot of stress with deadlines.

    Does the portal report both SAT and ACT scores?

    It takes awhile for the score to be updated and scored. They will take the best one from your test score inventory. Usually only one rep you deal with in your region. He/she coordinates on your behalf. Be patient scores will come around. I don’t know your DD overall package other than what you...

    Does the portal report both SAT and ACT scores?

    NROTC will take the highest scores and equalize to SAT norm. Only send your ACT. Don’t send your SAT, your ACT is superior. You will see a nice surprise on the NROTC Portal. Nice job on ACT.

    Candidate with ties to SA versus no ties

    Relying on Legacy is a tricky business so I wouldn’t bet too much hope on legacy. If everything being equal, yes likely legacy wins. But that is one look none of us will have. Some schools place legacy more Important than others. Many schools with legacy pull have financial ties to legacy or...

    deadline for 2019 graduate

    GPA not as important. But class rank is. Your GPA should be calculated on Unweighted without rounding to nearest tenth. So if 3.99 that is 3.9 not 4.0. Good luck.

    Choosing a major for NROTC

    Here’s my suggestion. If you don’t have strong test scores Tier 3 Non Science Full Scholarship is not recommended. To have more certainty you should compete with at least SAT Math 700+ and Verbal 750 or ACT E32, M30 for T3 Award. T1 and T2 are STEM and T2 is partial. If you must have...
