Accidentally selected Marine option in NROTC application, now I can't switch back.

I just started filling out my NROTC application, and I accidentally selected the Marine option instead of the Navy Option. Now, even when I click the bubble for Navy option, it still keeps me stuck as a Marine option. I have tried selecting Navy, logging out, then logging back in, but I haven't been able to change it. Can anyone help me out with this?

Try changing it, closing your browser, restarting your machine and trying the application again. I don't know if this will fix it, but if some info is being saved in what's called "the session" on the server then this should clear it out. If this fails then it's probably time to try IE if you're not currently using that. If that fails then I would start making phone calls. All just guesswork from a seasoned web programming developer and debugger.

I had a dream once that I woke up on the bus and the arch above the gates read "Parris Island. We Make Marines"

I said, no no, I joined the Navy. I was told I'm going to Orlando.

I actually woke up and was in Orlando and graduated as one of America's Sailors.

Then I became a Navy Corpsman and they dressed me like a tree. I spent more time with the Marines than most Marines do.

Embrace it. you will love the Marine Corps. In about 30 years when the traumatic memories fade.

Glad you were able to fix it. As much as we are both under the DoN, they are very different services. Although both expect young officers to lead day 1, take on slot of responsibility and make sound decisions with commander’s intent in mind. But culturally they are different.

I am curious, if he couldnt fix it, couldnt he just started a new application? Never been on the system so dont know how it works, but I have to imagine, you could have done it that way

Probably not, but I'm not certain. All the records for the application will be filed under some unique ID in their databases. I'm betting they use the social security number as that ID. I seem to recall DS had to provide that when logging in back in the day. If I'm correct, then when he attempts to start a new application it will get thrown out because the social security number is already in use. Just an educated guess which may be totally incorrect.
