    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.

    When do I choose what ROTC Program I want to enroll in at VMI? Did I do so Accidentally Already?

    I believe that VMI sent me some admissions paperwork, and I put down my intent to enroll in Navy ROTC. However, after re-examining what I wanted to get out of my military service, my parents and I decided that I should do Army ROTC. If the paperwork that they sent me is when I locked-in my...

    AROTC Transfer Process Post-Enrollment

    Our DS was awarded a 3-year national scholarship last year. Unfortunately, the college he chose was not a good fit (no academic or disciplinary issues), so he has moved on to another (yes, much more expensive) school that is in a different Brigade. I understand that all the paperwork to move...

    How will ROTC work with coronavirus and quarantine?

    Since I am possibly going to be doing AROTC this upcoming year, I can’t help but wonder what it’s like considering quarantine and covid-19. Is it still just the classes but online and pft by yourself at home?

    Howdy y’all, If I join AROTC in college, is it reasonable to still apply to my top choice of another SA branch? (Will this put me behind other applicants for USAFA/USNA? Will I still be able to get a nom from AROTC to USNA?) Thank you.
