    Applying as a freshman in college

    Not really sure where to begin. When I was younger and up until about sophomore year I was obsessed with going to either Notre Dame or the Naval Academy. And then things started to cool. ND kind of fell off of the map because I didn't really want to go to a school that was 85%+...

    Taking Calc based Physics at Community College?

    would this fulfill my requirement for 2 semester worth of calculus based physics? (I know I'd have to take two classes.) I would like to do this for a couple of different reasons. If I get the scholarship (No, I have not received the scholarship yet. However, my local CC sent out a mailing...

    Help!!! Out of shape, but would still like to apply!

    I’m interested in a NROTC scholarship but might apply for AFROTC scholarship as well, but I think I would prefer the Navy. Ok, so long story short, I am pretty much set grade wise/academics to put me in range for a NROTC scholarship (4.2ish weighted GPA, 2110 SAT, Eagle Scout, Class Rep in...

    NROTC...a couple of questions?

    The Navy makes it sound like you only have to take a couple required classes, and do a couple cool things in the summer, and they'll give you $180,000 to go to the school of your choice....but I know that's not really the case. How often do you have to get up early for PT? I was talking to...

    How hard is it to get a ROTC scholarship...?

    Ok...I know it is pretty hard and it depends on branch and major...or at least I think I do. So I got an NROTC brochure in the mail yesterday and their minimum requirements were quite low, something like a 530 Math SAT and a 520 CR, and they made it sound like practically everyone who applies...

    2015 Swab hopeful (Chances)

    Hi, I'm young, 15 and as my username suggests I want to go to the Naval Academy. But it's not that I'm having second thoughts, but as I get older and do more research on careers in the CG and Navy, I'd think I'd like it more in the CG. But bottom line is I want to be in one of those branches...

    Swimming requirements???

    How much swimming do you have to do to graduate from the Academy? It's not that I'm afraid or can't swim, I'm just not a really strong swimmer. At think at USNA they have to do a 10M jump to simulate jumping from a ship, CGA too? Also, do you have to do the 1000M in 40 minutes or whatever?

    A career in the Navy question?

    How many times will I have to be on a ship, that is deployed, or leaves port? I know it probably varies from job to job, but I was wondering which jobs are on ship the most and which the least? It's not that I don't want to be on a ship, I do, but I don't want to spend most of my career on one...

    Military Job security

    What is the job security going to be like for all the 5 branches in the next 10-20 years. I know the Air Force is going through a lot of reductions right, but I was wondering about the other branches. (I'm thinking more along the lines of officer) Coast Gaurd Air Force Army Navy...

    "I believe that we will win" shirt

    I know those shirts are a few years old, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a place where I could buy one. I couldn't find any on ebay, the USNA fan gear store or by googling it. Just wondering if anyone knew of a place or site. Thanks

    How hard is it to get a full NROTC or AFROTC scholarship?

    Does it depend on the University? My main one for ROTC is Notre Dame (if I get in), but I am willing to go a lot of places if it means going to college for free. I'm only a freshman in H.S., but I have a 4.2 GPA (4.25 highest possible), I am a little weak on staderdized testing, but I am...

    Plebe Summer

    I know you guys probably get a lot of questions about this topic, but I have a couple. How long is it? I've heard 7 weeks, but I'm not sure. Can I have some examples on what you did and what they put you through. What was the hardest thing you did? For plebe year in general, how often do...

    Physical requirments/Swimming

    I want to go to the Academy, but I want to know and prepare myself for some of the physical stuff I will have to do to graduate. I've picked up a couple things from books I've such as the jump from (how many feet?) to simulate jumping from a ship and something about having to swim in the...

    I am a freshman in H.S. and I am already planning to go to the Naval Academy or Notre Dame as my dream schools. I am also considering USCGA and USAFA. I will probably be asking a lot of dumb questions about getting in, staying, swimming, etc... so bear with me.
