    NSI Cancelled?

    The official word from NSTC is that NSI is cancelled. NROTC at VMI has been stellar about keeping MIDN informed, and attached is an excerpt from the latest update that was pushed on Friday, 10 April 2020. I hope this helps!

    Vmi questions

    Hey, rising 1/C here. In no particular order: I wouldn't worry about taking shining gear to STP, in the interest of flying under the radar. Your cadre will teach you how to shine shoes (and do literally everything else) during matriculation week. I wouldn't worry about labeling things. In 99...

    VMI NROTC Commissioning?

    I like where your head is at. The Navy looks at three things when evaluating applicants for Side-Load/Advanced Standing. 1) GPA 2) Physical Fitness 3)Aptitude/willingness to serve. My piece of advice would be to have at least two out of the three. If you have all three, its almost a sure bet to...

I'm currently sitting at week four, going on five since my paperwork was sent from DoDMERB to WA. Is there a threshlod time where I should be concerned about what is going...

    NROTC Summer Training

    My unit has recently put out forms for summer training sign-up. I am a rising 1/C, and will have to go to Sea Trials AND 1/C cruise.

    I don't believe DODMerb received all my documents - received DQ

    Mr. Mullen, does it really take three business weeks for DoDMERB to process AMIs and send them to the waiver authorities (in my case Navy). What is realistic? I submitted all my paperwork on 1/21, for reference.

    Question about under waiver review

    Wait for additional word. Coming from the medical technician's side of things, the last thing you want to do is inundate Pensacola (where the USN Waiver board is) with to0 much information to sort through, lest it bog them down, or worse- raise any other questions.

    VMI Regular Decision

    "Under Waiver Review" Timeframe

    I'm in the same boat, kinda. I'm a USN College Program Advanced Standing MIDN, and am waiting for a waiver. My paperwork was submitted at the end of October. Should I be concerned?

    Waiver Timeframe?

    Has anyone heard anything from DoDMERB/waiver authorities? Normally my unit swears in Mids every week as they receive waivers, but it's been a month and neither myself nor any of my fellow Mids have heard anything. We're all in the same boat, waiting for waivers. Any insight would be appreiated!
