    How is/are the culture/people in the Army?

    I am interested in doing Army ROTC (In part because my partial color blindness narrows my options), but I have heard some very negative things about the Army and the people in it. I have heard that they tend to be not only less intelligent but also are worse people that one wouldn't want to...

    I have "mild" red/green color blindness; How does this limit my options for ROTC?

    I am interested in doing ROTC, but I am concerned about my "mild" red-green color blindness. My diagnosis of "mild" red-green color blindess came from an online test, not an official examination. My first choice would be Navy, but I am willing to do ROTC for any branch of the military. I have...

    Navy and Air force Careers Comparison

    Hi everyone! I have applied for the class of '25 for both USNA and USAFA in hopes of getting into either one in order to pursue a military career. I've taken quarantine to really look into all the career opportunities available to me after the academy in both branches. I think both academies...

    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...

    Should I go Navy or Air Force?

    I have been lucky to receive a direct appointment to USAFA for the class of 2024 and an offer to the Naval Academy Prep School. The extra year at NAPS is not a factor in my decision. I would love to go to either academy, so I am basing my decision on what I will do in the Navy or Air Force after...

    Am I qualified??

    Hello everyone, I’m extremely considering the Air Force ROTC program and I’m wondering if any of you could give me a little insight to see if I’m even worth considering for a Air Force ROTC scholarship. Below I’ve listed my achievements and anything I deemed fitting to list: ECs: 4.26 GPA...

    I am a HS senior and I want to fly in the military. To keep things simple I know that the Marine Corps has PLC and you can get a guaranteed aviation contract. I also know it is possible to get selected as a pilot with AFROTC. Is it possible to be in both at the same time and choose one before I...

    AFROTC Chances with no sport and little to show leadership competency? Be honest

    Hi, I am currently a Highschool Junior, looking to apply for AFROTC starting this June. I just recently decided that joining the military was what I wanted, so I am a little late in preparing. I really have nothing to show for athletics, and extracurriculars and volunteer is quite lacking. I...

    Chances of ROTC Scholarship?

    I'm sure a lot of people have done this, but can you give me advice as well? I'm a sophomore in high school and I plan on doing Running Start to finish high school with an AA. (Which is another thing I'm confused about, since ROTC is four years, right? How would that work?) Varsity on swim...

    AFROTC Scholarship Major Question

    Hi all, I was looking at which majors the Air Force considers "technical" (and thus, priority will be given to them as far as AFROTC high school scholarships go). I noticed that there are honestly not many degrees it has listed, in my opinion. My question is, given these majors...

    Enlisting after AFROTC disenrollment

    I am an AS300 currently waiting on hearing if I will be disenrolled from AFROTC. My commander said he gave me a Recommendation of 3 on my DD785. Long story short, he just doesn’t feel like my leadership skills are where they will need to be to be an officer next year. I asked him if I could...

    So I'm currently ending my 1st year of college which would make me an e2 if I enlisted. Should I stay in college 1 more year to get auto e3? Or should I just go and start making money?

    Has anyone out there in the forum ever tried to switch from tech to non-tech on an AFROTC scholarship?
