    MSNBC Chris Matthews = Idiot

    There were very few cross-admits between SAs and HYP this year. It is a fallacy that SA matriculates are turning down Ivies in droves. It might make you mad to hear that - but it's better to draw conclusions based on actual outcomes. I have yet to meet or hear of an (N,A,AF)ROTC student at...

    Academy vs. ROTC

    I was just talking to a mid who is concerned about a "draft" at USNA for subs. I don't know of any similar practices within NROTC for filling sub slots at service selection time. That may a consideration for your son.

    Story on increasing ROTC enrollment numbers

    Geez, Pima. Good posts as always! :smile: Especially that advice. Just to clarify. For ROTC - it's 4 active and 4 reserve isn't it? 8 from winging for naval aviators - all active? I don't know what the sub commitment is. Is that correct?

    Welcome! From your screen name I'm guessing you are (or represent) the PMS at Cornell. I'm glad you're here. What a valuable asset to students and parents who are interested in ROTC at Cornell.

    NROTC Scholarship Strategy - What to List

    NROTCDAD55 In my humble opinion your NROTC strategy is sound. The units at elite universities rarely fill to capacity. We just went through this again this past year. If they do then your daughter would be able to pick up her scholarship with the help of her unit at mid -year. NROTC...

    Presentation of ROTC Scholarship?

    Cycling - you HAVE been awarded the scholarship so definitely mention it. Most students are eventually successful in getting the scholarship transferred. Even if it is after they matriculate. I just feel like mentioning this to the NROTC scholarship recipients. The Navy generally takes a...
