    Hi all, Reading through the forums I've learned a little about how when applying for the AROTC scholarship, establishing a strong connection with the ROO or PMS at a university may have sway on the admissions process for said university. I was wondering if anyone has...

    How to be Competitive in ROTC

    For class rank how does it work if one has a tier 1 major (I.e. engineering, chemistry, etc.) VS one with a major like business or economics? Since STEM majors would likely have lower grades/GPA… what if someone is double minoring/majoring? Is this taken into consideration?

    ROTC v USMA summer opportunities

    Hi, i was wondering if there are summer camps/opportunities that are strictly for USMA kiddos— I.e. Camp Buckner/CFT allows ROTC cadets based on merit, correct? What about air assault, etc.? If so, how competitive is it to get selected (from ROTC)?

    Boots (and comfort in them)

    Just got oakleys ~last week. First time I wore them they tore up the backs of my heels. Wore them again yesterday and they reopened the scabs. Is this normal when breaking them in? What can I do to prevent this/further blistering?

    Report scholarship to FAFSA?

    I remember reading that FAFSA wants students to report all scholarships even as they come along. I just decided I will be using the 4yr AROTC scholarship; do I have to report this to FAFSA now?

    Exchange student at academy

    I know people at academies can stay at another academy for a semester. Do ROTC cadets have an option to stay at an academy? If not, what opportunities are there to work with SA cadets/on SA campus?

    Posts after AROTC?

    I heard at USMA posts are chosen/ranked by the cadets... how are posts assigned after AROTC? Are there certain jobs assigned for the posts or...? ALSO will there still be that new branching system in place where AROTC and USMA cadets will equally compete for jobs in 2025?

    ROTC Scholarship - accept or reject

    I have wonderful financial aid from my university. However, I also earned the AROTC scholarship. Should I reject and give it to someone who may actually need it? In that case my service commitment would only be 3 years as well, so in the situation I would like to move to a civilian career I...

Ie: ROTC grads are ready to work since they’ve been more chill through college but I’ve also heard USMA grads are better leaders (bc of their experience). Would...

    AROTC “School of Intent” Ranking Advice

    Hi, I am hesitant on how I should rank my schools (especially since I haven’t been able to visit any or their units due to COVID). I have an Ivy League school marked as number one (where I probably won’t be accepted), but my 2nd choice is a little bit of a reach (40% acceptance rate) and I LOVE...
