    NROTC - Quit to Enlist & then come back to Officer

    Good evening everyone. This is a strange question but I'm curious what the community has to say. I'm an incoming 4/C Marine-Option in NROTC with a 35 ACT, 3.9 High School GPA, and both a 300 PFT & CFT. I THINK I love the idea of going straight into the officer corps, and I'm excited for my...

    NROTC (Marine Corps v Navy)

    Howdy y’all, I was curious whether how the route one chooses for NROTC (Marine Corps v Navy v Navy Nurse) affects his/her ROTC experience in college... Does everybody in NROTC train together, participating in the same activities, regardless of which path in the navy ppl choose? Or do they...

    Why do navy option midshipmen get all of their uniforms when Marine Options do not?

    Looking at the NROTC gear issue, the "Graduation issue" is Service Dress White Choker Coat, White Dress Gloves, and Service Dress White Trousers. So all Navy Option uniforms. Therefore, Navy Options graduate with just about every required uniform item they need, including their khakis, NWUs...

    Accidentally selected Marine option in NROTC application, now I can't switch back.

    I just started filling out my NROTC application, and I accidentally selected the Marine option instead of the Navy Option. Now, even when I click the bubble for Navy option, it still keeps me stuck as a Marine option. I have tried selecting Navy, logging out, then logging back in, but I haven't...

    Greetings Are the NROTC and the NROTC-MO completely different programs that need to be applied to separately? Or, does a person apply for just an NROTC Scholarship and express his/her interest in both the Navy & Marine Corps? If they are separate applications, does a person need to send his...

    Virginia Tech Marine ROTC

    So for starters, I found out Thursday that I received the Marine Option 4-year scholarship to Virginia Tech. I was DEFINITELY NOT expecting it- in fact, I had assumed it was a lost cause and begun looking at other branch scholarships. Although I am still waiting on a decision from the Naval...

    Marine PLC without enlisting?

    I am applying to the NROTC Marine Option Scholarship, but I do not know if I am all that competitive. My recruiter was always talking about enlisting and then going to PLC during college. I am all for that option, except I do not want to miss school. I would be missing my first semester at...

    NROTC Dilemma: Navy vs Marines

    So I will preface this by saying that I want to fly fixed wing aircraft for the Naval service (I know about the "needs of the Navy" but I want to make the decision that gives me the best chance at fixed-wing). I have opened my NROTC scholarship application and am having a difficult time choosing...

    NROTC MO Minorities

    Just a quick question for anyone who has insight into the NROTC MO Program. Does the Marine Corps still have a specific number of minority applicants they aim to put on scholarship? I read somewhere that in 2010 they were supposed to give around 99 scholarships to Minorities. Thank you in advance!

    Recent USNA Graduates please help- USNA vs Marine Corps NROTC

    I have had the honor of recently being notified that I have both received a nomination and appointment to attend USNA class of 2021. I see this as a huge blessing but the more I research the Naval Academy, the more negative perspectives and opinions I come into contact with. I have also received...
