    APFT for 4 yr winner/AROTC

    For a reference point, my son had a couple day orientation prior to classes starting Freshman year. The APFT was given during this orientation. He passed at the time but barely. I think it opened his eyes a little bit.

    I hope this doesn't come off as condescending.... Is the USNA his dream, or your dream? Either way, he has an excellent plan B. Congrats.

    AROTC Picking A School

    Assuming you're referring to AROTC scholarship, wait until you receive the packet in the mail. It might take 7-10 days to arrive. Then review all the info before accepting.

    AROTC Increasing Chances to Admission to Universities?

    I can tell you what happened to my son a couple of years ago. He was given a 4 yr. AROTC scholarship to three schools including his #1 choice which was an Ivy. The ROO was notified about the scholarship and my son's interest in attending. ROO wrote an email and visited Dean of Admissions in...

    Military intelligence

    For AROTC you can branch MI regardless of your major. However, anywhere from 55- 70% of all of those selected for MI get branch detailed their first few years. That means the LT years will be spent in IN, FA, AR or CM before transitioning to MI

    MIT vs Princeton AROTC

    Has she received acceptances to those schools? I ask because those are two of the top five most competitive colleges in America. I would research some other AROTC programs just in case.

    Army ROTC 1st Scholarship Board Results Published

    When my DS received his scholarship, he did not get any phone call. I don't believe this is unusual. Expect to get something in the mail in 7-10 days.

    Army ROTC Scholarship acceptance...

    As k2rider said above, the packet you will receive in the mail has a lot of info in it. My DS had the same dilemma when he won his 4 year AROTC scholarship. He ended up waitlisted, then denied to his #1 choice. He ended up transferring his scholarship to a school that was not in his top three...

    How do I find out how the AROTC Interview went?

    I believe the candidate is supposed to send the emails, not the parent.

    Component Release Today

    I'm assuming this was when there were less active duty slots available so it was more competitive. This year and last year very few people who wanted active duty didn't get it.

    Army ROTC Armor/Infantry Branch Competitiveness

    The past few years about 16% of ROTC cadets ended up in either infantry or armor. Of course, there are a lot of cadets who do not want either of those branches so 16% is misleading. Bottom line, the better your score on the OML the better your chances of getting the branch you desire.
