    NROTC to Naval Aviator

    I have a similar thread in the USNA forum, but was wondering if anyone here was/is or has a DS/DD that went NROTC and got an aviation spot and what that process was like for them going through college. Thanks!

    Best route to become a naval aviator

    I’ve only heard good things about KP and the options coming out. Everyone who’s gone never regretted that decision. Like you said, what holds me back is if whether or not I want to study the maritime curriculum for four years.

    Best route to become a naval aviator

    All good things to consider. There’s no one path to get to where I want to go, and I can’t predict the future. As of now, i’m thinking i’ll go NROTC at VT, try to get into USNA, and if I don’t get in i’ll give it my best shot to get a pilot slot out of college. I can’t look back and think I...

    Best route to become a naval aviator

    Very true. There will always be that “what if” that I have to prepare for. If I want to go to USNA, my best bet is from VT. Do I take the VT route, try again, and still commission if I don’t get in? Or try from KP? I don’t expect you to know that answer, just something that’s been the burning...

    Best route to become a naval aviator

    Essentially, if I work my tail off either way, I should have a good shot at achieving this and will have to accept the fact that if it doesn’t work, that’s life and i’ll still commission as an officer.

    Best route to become a naval aviator

    really appreciate the reply. I heard that the maritime schools like KP get whatever’s left over from USNA, ROTC, and OCS, so would NROTC be my best route over KP? In short - go to NROTC instead of KP for a better chance to become a pilot. I know a lot of this is relative, and nothings a guarantee.

    Best route to become a naval aviator

    I know i’ve made clear in previous threads - but maybe someone has a cookie cut answer. Are my chances of becoming a naval aviator greastest at USNA, USMMA, or going NROTC at VT. If anyone has some insight on this, that’d be great. Thank you!

    Mid willing to answer questions

    I received my TWE to USNA recently. My ultimate goal is to be a pilot. I have a spot at USMMA and also an NROTC scholarship. What would give me the best shot at achieveing this goal? Reapplying to Navy, going to USMMA, or doing 4 years of NROTC? Thanks!

    TWE and NROTC RE-APP

    Not sure where my heart lies at this point and that’s the hard part. What it ultimately comes down to is what route will give me the best chance at becoming a pilot. If that’s KP, then I feel like it’d be an obvious choice at this point. But then again, my four years would be vastly different at...

    TWE and NROTC RE-APP

    That’s the hard part. I honestly don’t want to stay at VT. And if I did, I feel like i’d regret not going to KP. There’s that leap of faith...

    TWE and NROTC RE-APP

    That’s the bright side of things - every USMMA grad says they never had any regrets.

    TWE and NROTC RE-APP

    I know a previous thread has a similar question, but I suppose mine is more specific to my situation. I received my TWE today and am torn between my two options. I’ve mentioned before that I have an offer to Kings Point and the door has also been opened with my NROTC scholarship at VT. Part of...

    The Waiting List

    Great info, but I just want to be clear that leadership roles DO NOT carry over from hs? I had a lot going in this round and just want to be sure. And it seems weird as a re app that you’d only really have grades and test scores and very few places to exhibit other things considering it’s your...

    The Waiting List

    If we reapply from college, does the academy still see everything from the year prior? ACT, leadership, etc.

    The Waiting List

    So if we’re still CPR today - Are we really competing for foundation or NAPS spots at this point?

    Still no answer....

    I appreciate your response. I’m trying my best to navigate what route is best for me, and trying to keep as many doors open as possible. I haven’t settled on anything, but a huge part of me wants to attend VT and then reapply to USNA if I receive a TWE. I’ve been told by numerous sources that...

    Still no answer....

    Really appreciate this, however, I tried using the email address provided but it would not allow it. Not sure if this is the correct address. Anyway I could look into this further?
