    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...

    Is USMMA actually a Federal Service Academy?

    I have often heard that is an official federal service academy and I have also heard that it is a dedicated NROTC school. How does this academy work on paper? Is it a military academy? It seems to be a non-traditional military academy; those who do not go active-duty military serve as a USNR...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Separated from USNA, need advice/guidance

    Hi everyone, This is something I have never discussed with anyone in person.... but I figure sharing this with strangers within a forum is the easiest first step. Not sure if this is more therapeutic, but I am seeking advice as to what options I have for repayment of my SA debt, as well as any...

    Sea Stories?

    Hi! so I'm new to these forums, and have heard that a lot of people who graduate end up on "cutters." How does all of this work? What do cutters do? Do they serve as a miniature navy? Does this mean that people end up going to cold regions with ice mostly? Or do people travel around the world or...

    Enlisting in Army

    Howdy Y’all, I am interested in applying to USNA and USMA. However, I would also like to enlist in the army this year (split op). My recruiter told me if I decided to go USNA, I would first have to finish AIT. Since USNA BCT starts late June, is there any way I can finish my AIT before then...

    Scholarship uniform stipend

    DS received the NROTC National Scholarship and I know he will get reimbursed for the uniform fee. He is attending Norwich which is a Corps of Cadet SMA. Will he be refunded the full costs of the uniform fee (roughly $2300) or just the portion of Navy uniforms he receives? TIA

    Board Decisions

    I know that all scholarships are handled by a board at NSTC, headed by Admiral Bernacchi, but how are contracts (commissions without the tuition) handled? I've heard some say that the same board decides those as well, or that the board sees the number of applicants each year and issues the...

    Aerospace/aeronautical engineer in military question

    I’ve been interested in aerospace/ aeronautical engineering for a long time and i’ve recently considered the officer military route. I’m about the graduate HS, I’m considering AF and NAVY since they are the biggest in aviation I assume. I’m leaning towards the Navy since I enjoy the ocean. I...

    Are the majority of slots already filled up for the class of 2023?

    I fully intend on reapplying if I don't get in this time around because it's been my dream to serve my country and attend USNA. I haven't received a TWE yet and I'm just wondering if it's ridiculous to think I could be appointed at this point in the process. When do they typically respond if so...

    How can someone be committed this early?

    Hello all, I recently say someone from my school and grade being congratulated on social media for being committed to the Navy for 2024 and I am very happy for them. I have never talked to this person but I know that they are very good at their sport and I believe this may be a factor. I am...

    So my boyfriend is in the Navy Nuke program and there was a big group of them that applied and if I am correct they turned in their applications about a week ago. He told me yesterday that the academy had the selection board yesterday and I was just wondering if anyone had a clue how long it...
