For me personally, results were just released, and unfortunately I was unable to secure the national scholarship during this second board, but I did have a question about it. Obviously, not everyone who receives the scholarship to go...

    Hey yall, I'm a current senior looking to major in psychology and commission into the Marines, and I have several questions on how to decide between the two. I've been browsing the forums, but most of the posts I've run into are for AROTC commissions which don't really help me that much. As...

    Why do so many Marines graduate from the Citadel?

    Exactly as the title says. What makes the Citadel, compared to the other SMAs or ROTC programs, so appealing to Marine prospects? If you're a Marine officer who graduated from the Citadel, did you notice a large amount of your peers (who weren't in any Marine-specific classes) also going into...

    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...

    I just started filling out my NROTC application, and I accidentally selected the Marine option instead of the Navy Option.

    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!
