    Transferring ROTC Units for the Fall of 2022

    I have received a Nurse Corps NROTC scholarship for the Fall of 2022. However, I didn't get into the school I designated as my first choice. I got into my second choice school and plan on attending there, but I am relying on the NROTC scholarship to attend. I have sent in my Placement Change...

    Life Hits Hard (Rant/Situation Update)

    Hello to all, I received a letter in the mail from Great Lakes stating that my waiver for mild red/green color deficiency was denied. Because of this, I do not qualify for my NROTC Scholarship Navy-option (as to go for an URL officer slot since that is the main purpose for NROTC). It's hard to...

    Can you still finish your A-School training if this happened…?

    I have a friend who is in A-School for NAVY training and he is level 1 so he can’t leave base unless he’s level 2. He went out one night, off base with other level 2’s and got drinks (alcohol). Some of the level 2’s were underage, 18-19. The recruiters? found out about this and the underage...

    Cross Commissioning in ROTC

    I was wondering what the process of cross commissioning is like, or if it's even still possible. Most of the posts I've seen are older and links don't take you to the same pages anymore. Any updated advice on the subject would be appreciated. I.E going AROTC and commission Navy what it might...

    How close to th action are pilots?

    Hello! I'm trying to decide between USAFA and USNA (a good problem to have, but an incredibly difficult decision) and wanted to get some experienced input on how close to the action I would be as a pilot in the Navy. And, well, what are my chances of being selected for a pilot slot? I'm leaning...

    No decision

    So my friend just received the scholarship, we both turned our scholarships in around the same time. Is it possible that I might not receive a 4 year, or should I just wait it out?

    Can someone explain to me how this program works, also is it possible to graduate in 4 years instead of the 5. And would it be possible to stay at home, since I only live 5 minutes away from the school?

    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...

    How dumb of an idea is it to join the Nat Guard/ Navy Reserve just to get into the academy easier?

    Pretty much the title, I know a guy is who is at MAPS and he swears this is the way to go about it.
