    2 Week Fleet Standard ROM

    I know there is a lot of cynicism amongst us plebes but I believe we all aware that this is temporary. At least for me, Herndon, summer trainings, and new leadership has given me a lot to look forward to and that's what's keeping me going through the daily life. I personally don't know anyone...

    NROTC Scholarship Commitment

    I received the ISR scholarship last year and did a wealth of research on it. If I'm remembering correctly, it is binding but an appointment to USNA can override that. I'll try and find the official document and get it to you. I ended up being DQ'd for the ISR for prior drug use but ended up...

    Admissions Counselor

    I never contacted my Counselor unless there was a concern over my application. They don't control who gets LOAs. Simply calling to get your name and how bad you want it won't change the chances of receiving an appointment. You could try to see what you could improve on, but to be honest, these...

    Rising 2 Degree at USAFA, AMA

    You said logged pilot hours are considered. Is it possible for Cadets to gain these while at USAFA (for those w/o a PPL)? Or is this based on prior experience before attending? Thank you!

    Class decisions

    Take Chemistry. AP Chem was personally the hardest AP class I took out of the eleven throughout my tenure in high school. An extra year of chem before hand will definitely help you out senior year when you are also talking other APs.

    Return of the cadet wing and the class of '24.

    I have heard from BCT staff (indirectly) that C/o 2024 will be quarantined for 14 days upon arrival and BCT will be about 21 days long. There will be no switch off from 1st to 2nd beast. Of course, this is all subject to change and is not official unless it has been said by the academy itself...

    As of now, the tours they had planned on April 3rd, 6th, and 10th are not cancelled. I called admissions and they said to check this website for any official cancellations. Also, if you have a DoD identification card you’re are still allowed on campus.

    ISR NROTC confirmations

    Was selected for ISR by regional recruiting office but was DQ’d and put back into national pool for prior marijuana use (one time is disqualifying for ISR). Was selected for the national scholarship today! Feeling blessed for this opportunity. Don’t do drugs kids!
