    AROTC Aviation

    Yes, I agree! I would love to fly but would also be totally fine with a ground job! I don't plan to go career so from my understanding I would spend a good amount of time flying early on, and maybe my last couple years not so much, which would be fine with me.

    AROTC Aviation

    Hi all! I am interested in branching aviation. What is the time commitment? I would love to fly but am also cautious to extend my time in, given that at 20/21 it is a lot to commit to. Thanks!

    Application Status?

    So that means simply means my file hasn’t been fully reviewed yet? I got an update on 7/10 with a letter saying I was competitive but I didn’t get moved to candidate status. I guess what I’m asking is what the difference between competitive applicant and candidate?

    @Wishful is very correct about last minute appointments— my dad received his three days before. That being said, this is very unique, but does happen.

    Can AROTC nominate to USAFA & USNA?

    Question says it all. My AROTC professor has said he will nominate me for all 3, as I requested, but we are unclear on whether he can only nominate me to USMA or if he can nominate me to other branches. Thanks!

    Gift for Female overnight visit host

    I went to high school in the area and quite a few of my friends are cadettes at USMA. Any of them would enjoy an American Burrito giftcard, WP pizza, Starbucks, Amazon, etc. & of course brownies and such are good! While a gift is not necessary, if it's something you can do it's always a plus...

    SAT "Writing Score"-- Different from Essay?

    Hi all! I am a current high school senior, who will be applying for the class of 2022. Long story short, I didn't apply b/c my parents discouraged me from applying.
