    NROTC concern

    Hi Missouri Dad, My son is in the same boat, so to speak. Similar stats--he had application completed in August, though, not July. No word on anything! We have received almost no information from Navy ROTC--but online it says all info has been received and processed, but no decision has...

    Changing your schools of preference for NROTC

    I am pretty sure you can take your AFROTC scholarship to any approved school that offers your approved major. You can look on the AFROTC website for the list of approved schools. It is different than the Navy scholarship which is awarded to a specific school...

    Hello Everybody!

    Congrats to you!! I'm sorry, I do not know anything about rifles at KP. I am fairly certain though, if you accept an appointment to any service academy, you are no longer eligible for ROTC scholarships.

    Thanks Maximus. My son was originally scheduled for Feb, too, but was moved to Jan. The Feb visit has a parade doesn't it? Very nice. Aqua Rain--you should get a packet of forms soon after your Academic acceptance. I don't remember the exact time frame but I think it was within a week or...

    On the USAF Fitness chart that I posted earlier, there is a section for abd girth measurement--so that is why I mentioned weight. On the AFROTC site (which WA MOM linked above) there is also the maximum scores for the PFA For men up to age...

    Army vs. Navy

    According to the Navy ROTC website, you have to apply by Jan 31. I think both the Navy and the Army offer wonderful opportunities to their officers. The most striking, initial difference, I would think, is how do you feel about going to sea?

    I need some advice

    Just a mom here . . . Why are you interested in a career in the Air Force? Why do you want to attend the Academy? You will need to be very sure about your answers to these questions when you speak to your parents. My son is candidate for class of 2013 and has known he wanted a military...

    DoDMERB website-ROTC

    I don't think it does until ROTC requests it. I don't know the official answer, but can tell you what has happened with my son. He has been medically qualified for USAFA and USNA since the summer. He was awarded a scholarship from AFROTC last week and just today his status changed on the...

    Am I qualified?

    AFROTC Academic requirements I don't know if you have looked at this, but maybe this can give you an idea of how you compare. I know they only look at the Verbal and Math sections of the SAT. Good luck!

    You are correct about that date, and I'm sorry I suggested it before realizing it was too late for ROTC.
