    Declining HSSP Numbers?

    I was wondering if anyone can make sense of this data. It shows a significant decline in HSSP applicants over the last decade. Combining this with more recent data, this trend is continuing drastically. In a post from 2018, there were 5,581 applicants, which is down from well over 15,000 back in...

    ADHD Waiver Help (AFROTC)

    To explain my situation. When I was younger I was diagnosed and given medication for ADHD and took that medication for a while. December of 2018 was the date of my last prescription (although I stopped taking it in like august of that year). So this month is my 2-year point of no meds. I NEVER...

    Applying to ROTC in Freshman Year

    I'm currently a freshman in college and I'm considering joining either AROTC or AFROTC with a scholarship, but I'm wondering about the likelihood of getting in, things I should be aware of, as well as any differences between ROTC and service academies aside from the setting at typical colleges...

    AFROTC Type 7

    I was just notified that I was extended a scholarship offer, non-technical major, Type 7. I can hardly contain myself. :) The hard work paid off. I'm excited to serve in the world's greatest Air Force. Thank you to all those at Service Academy Forums who helped me to get where I am today.

    NO SAT

    Hey guys I'm in a tentative situation at the moment. I've looked at ROTC and it looks like a great opportunity. However, it looks like one of the requirements is an SAT score (for AFROTC). I have registered for the SAT on 4 separate occasions but all 4 have been cancelled. Is there any...

    AFROTC Wright State or Ohio State?

    I'm an enlisted airman in the AF reserves. I'm considering going back to college with the sole purpose of commissioning into the active duty AF. I have a good civilian career with no need for a degree, so AFROTC and commissioning will be my biggest priority. I am trying to decide whether to...

    Military astronauts that aren't pilots?

    I know that many of the astronauts that come from the military are pilots, but I wondered if any were more engineering oriented. I know that I would like to join the military and a major goal of mine would be to become an astronaut (highly unlikely, I know). I also know that engineering roles...

    Double Major with AFROTC?

    Hello, I'm currently an incoming freshman going to attend a four year in-state university. I have been strongly considering AFROTC but have a couple questions. I was planning on majoring in Political Science with a concentration on International Relations, and hoping to double major or minor in...

    Are students selected for AFROTC scholarships at specific schools or in general, for any school?

    Hey Everyone, I thought that AFROTC offered general/universal scholarships, meaning the acceptance into ROTC was independent of the school the recipient attended (of course, the school would have to offer an AFROTC program); however, in my scholarship application, the Air Force asked me to...

    What is an average Air Force ROTC fitness score?

    Hey Everyone, I am a decently fit guy and I have trained a bit over the last few months (nothing crazy, but a few sets of push-ups and sit-ups each day and runs periodically). I have been working specifically to improve on the Air Force ROTC Physical Fitness Assessment. What is a standard or...

    Will AFROTC allow me to double-major in one etechnical and one non-techincal major?

    Hey Everyone, I want to study economics (a non-technical major); however, I have been informed at only about 10% of scholarship students are allowed to study non-technical non-foreign language majors. One suggestion I received was to study Applied Math instead of Economics because they are very...

    Will Air Force ROTC let me major in economics?

    Hey Everyone, I am a rising senior, and I plan to apply for an AFROTC scholarship this fall. I want to study economics, but the Air Force does not recognize it as a technical major. Economics is still very heavy in math, especially calculus, so it feels technical-adjacent to me, where it isn't...

    Air Force ROTC: What Does it Take?

    I will be doing AFROTC once I begin college and I am wondering- what does it take? I know enough about the physical, academic, and integrity requirements, but I am talking about things other than that, such as time management, etc. If anyone has experience about AFROTC that they'd like to share...

    Is weight a major issue for ROTC Scholarships?

    Hi Everyone, I am 5 feet and 8.5 inches tall and weigh about 133-134 lbs (although, as a bit of a late bloomer, I am still gaining height). I hope to join the AFROTC, but I also plan to apply to AROTC as well. I am looking at the weight standards for the Air Force (The Army's maximum weight is...

    How likely am I get an AFROTC scholarship?

    This fall I will be a high school senior. I am not particularly concerned about my academics, I am a little concerned about my fitness, and I am very concerned about my leadership experience. I have a 1410 on the SAT, although I am scheduled to take it again in September and I have gotten...

    AFROTC HSSP Highly Desired Majors... Why?

    It's common knowledge that AFROTC scholarships are usually awarded to people taking "technical majors" (https://www.afrotc.com/scholarships/desired-majors/). I assume this means Big Blue has a shortage of people with those degrees, but what I'd like to know is this: if somebody is looking to...

    AFROTC/NROTC - Careers out of Electrical Engineering

    I've searched this forum and found a lot of incredibly helpful peers and intuitive lines of questioning so I figured I'd shoot my own, Thank you for your time and consideration. I am currently 26 and enrolled at a local college, in order to transfer to one of my state colleges for Electrical...

    AFROTC waiver for an IEP, that has had little impact on my academics.

    Hey, sorry for another one of these questions, but I haven't found a forum regarding my question, so here I am. So I have an IEP, it's just for extra time in class and that's it. I haven't ever needed medication for it, and I haven't used the accommodations in a year. My high school GPA was a...

    AFROTC & International Question

    Hi all, I'm a junior in high school, prepping to apply for an AFROTC scholarship (opens in June). But I will be living in Mexico by then (long story short: U.S. State Dept. reasons, and yes, it will happen). Anyone know how that changes things at all? As in, for the interview, or application...
