    Relationship while in AFROTC?

    Hello everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by my post. So currently I am attending AFROTC with my girlfriend and I am currently in AS200 but she is in AS100. We've been dating for 5 years and did long distance for a year so I would consider it is pretty serious?.. Because of that 1 year...

    Looking for opinion and advice on non-typical situation. My daughter did some counceling and zoloft for about 4 months due to covid isolation limiting class / social life. As things opened up she was fine and the doctor considered the “mood disorder” resolved and took her off the medication...

    AFROTC Inactive Enlisted Ranks

    I was just reading that while being a cadet through AFROTC I'll be assigned an inactive enlisted rank. It is said that this is based upon varying levels of experience, like Civil Air Patrol or JROTC. I wasn't involved with but I am an Eagle Scout. So this brought up two questions, 1) is there a...

    Waiver for now-benign headaches???

    I am joining AFROTC on a type-1 this upcoming fall and need a qualifying DoDMERB to contract of course. The only remedial I have remaining on my DoDMERB is a “history of headaches that affected my performance or required prescription medication within the last two years”, which is almost the...

    Hello all, I'm currently preparing to attend NSI and do NROTC at Boston College, but was also awarded an AFROTC foreign language major Type 2 scholarship, so ~60k a year for three years with a tuition of ~200k. Obviously, the Navy makes more sense financially (full tuition all 4 years), and I...

    J-100 AFROTC Scholarship

    I haven’t seen any mention of this so far and I’ve used this forum for SA and ROTC stuff quite awhile. Recently, I was honored to receive a J-100 Character-In-Leadership scholarship. For those of you who are unfamiliar with what that is; Gen Goldfein, before he retired, wanted a scholarship...

    AROTC Major

    Hello all, I just received an AFROTC type 7 scholarship as a foreign language major. I'm wondering, can I only switch between languages within my foreign language major, or can I also switch to a non-technical major? If I must stick with a foreign language, can I double major in college (i.e...

    Awarded AFROTC HSSP Scholarships Statistics?

    Hi, I did not receive an AFROTC HSSP scholarship. I was wondering if statistics such as the amount of scholarships awarded, average ACT score of scholarship recipients, etc. would ever be released. Just interested to see if anything changed due to the different circumstances in 2020-21. Thanks

    Current AFROTC cadet, ask anything

    As a companion to @Jarhead713 's thread about AROTC, I am a current AS200 (Sophomore) in the AFROTC program on an HSSP scholarship. Ask me anything*! *Don't ask me about the PGL/PGM. If you think waiting on a scholarship is bad, I don't even know if I have a slot to commission or not.

    NROTC Scholarship Reflection

    Hello all, I am a current 4/C MIDN at Virginia Tech. I was in the college program until yesterday, I was just awarded a 4 year National Scholarship (thankfully). Paying for college out of pocket was getting very old. As I search through these forums, I see a lot of stress about GPA and SAT...

    Does college choice effect chances at a rated AFSC

    I'm currently a senior in high school and have already started receiving some of my college decisions. I was looking into how to become a pilot and obviously one of the factors is my GPA in college. Assuming all other things equal, why would I choose to go to a more difficult college when I can...

    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...

    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...
