    NROTC NSI 3 weeks now?

    Hello, Does anyone know if NSI is now 3 weeks instead of 4 weeks? The NROTC Facebook page is posting updates on Cycle 1 and they wrote “NSI is a three week indoctrination program..” . Just wondering if the program shortened to 3 weeks. Has there been a change?

    Hello all, I'm currently preparing to attend NSI and do NROTC at Boston College, but was also awarded an AFROTC foreign language major Type 2 scholarship, so ~60k a year for three years with a tuition of ~200k.

    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?
