    NROTC MO Application Status

    I would have your son check with his recruiter right away. When did he apply? My son's recruiting station always had items sent in promptly. They have been wonderful. Now, he's anxiously waiting like everyone else.

    When does USNA start sending out TWE?

    Thank you...It's only just the beginning! One thing that he came away from this weekend at Citadel was the realization that no matter where he goes to school the outcome will be the same. It's ALL up to him...and he is in control of what he wants. Whether it's a SA, SMC, or a State University...

    USNA/NAPS/rejection

    Keep in mind that many people are not open to discuss the dreaded TWE. I thought that my experience would help which is why I'm open to discussing the process. I'm confident that there have been MANY more than 2.
