    AROTC Aviation

    Yes, I agree! I would love to fly but would also be totally fine with a ground job! I don't plan to go career so from my understanding I would spend a good amount of time flying early on, and maybe my last couple years not so much, which would be fine with me.

    AROTC Aviation

    Hi all! I am interested in branching aviation. What is the time commitment? I would love to fly but am also cautious to extend my time in, given that at 20/21 it is a lot to commit to. Thanks!

    Application Status?

    So that means simply means my file hasn’t been fully reviewed yet? I got an update on 7/10 with a letter saying I was competitive but I didn’t get moved to candidate status. I guess what I’m asking is what the difference between competitive applicant and candidate?

    @Wishful is very correct about last minute appointments— my dad received his three days before. That being said, this is very unique, but does happen.

    Can AROTC nominate to USAFA & USNA?

    Question says it all. My AROTC professor has said he will nominate me for all 3, as I requested, but we are unclear on whether he can only nominate me to USMA or if he can nominate me to other branches. Thanks!

    Gift for Female overnight visit host

    I went to high school in the area and quite a few of my friends are cadettes at USMA. Any of them would enjoy an American Burrito giftcard, WP pizza, Starbucks, Amazon, etc. & of course brownies and such are good! While a gift is not necessary, if it's something you can do it's always a plus...

    Hi all! I've posted this on the SA board, but figured I could probably get better help here. I'm currently a freshman on a 4 year AROTC scholarship planning to apply for the co 2023 at the Air Force Academy. Long story short, I did not apply for the co 2022. I am aware I would have to start...

    SAT "Writing Score"-- Different from Essay?

    Hi all! I am a current high school senior, who will be applying for the class of 2022. Long story short, I didn't apply b/c my parents discouraged me from applying.

    AROTC 2nd Board notifications

    I got a 4 year! Yay! :) Congrats to everyone who received them, and for those who don't... there's always the 3rd board. I'm wondering for some friends... were all the scholarships updated at once? Two of my friends applied and when my status changed (Thursday, I checked at 4) and I texted...

    AROTC 2nd Board notifications

    Anyone received a board date? My ROO called me and told me to check my dashboard. Wouldn't me anything else for the obvious. Has anyone's status changed? I'm doubting he would have called me if I got passed over, so I'm guessing they just haven't been updated yet. But I want to confirm that...
