Could anyone tell me how long it took to schedule your AFROTC interview after submitting your application online? Also, how long does it take to be considered "board-ready" after your interview? Thank you!

My ds received an email from the AFROTC detachment with his interview time 7 days after he finished his application. His interview was scheduled 7 days after that. He hasn't received any confirmation that he is board ready for AFROTC, but assumes he is since his interview was 3 weeks ago. His status for AROTC updated to board ready in his portal within hours of his interview.

I take that back. He told me that it does say that he is "eligible" which means his interview has been processed but he doesn't know when it changed to that after his interview.

My dd received a call within a few days from the detachment administering the interview. The interview was set up for the following week (on a Friday) and her application showed "board ready' the next week.

Her interview was at a school which she is not interested in attending, but further away than two schools to which she is applying. She was not given a choice where to interview. Nor was Zoom an option (she didn't want that, but it sounds like some applicants are given that option).

Sept 20 was date became interview ready. Interview took place 10/7.
The email from AFROTC says 20 days... we tried proactively to schedule earlier, but that wasn't successful.
He just checked the portal and there is no update.
On the email it says board will take place 10-18 through 10-22 and notifications will occur 11-02.

So no idea if they will upload the interview in time, we did the best on our side though, can't control everything, but be sure to plan for a bit of lead time.

The next board is in Jan on the 17th.

Good Luck!

Does the application status say "eligible" on the homepage before you click into the application? That is the only confirmation we found that the interview was uploaded.

if i recall correctly, yes, my application status read "eligible" after my interview was uploaded, and it stayed that way until i received notice of my scholarship. i believe the status read "offered" when the scholarship was awarded.

My DD was contacted within days of the final part of her application for the interview. Because she had the interview in December, the next board wasn't until February, so there was no rush to be "board ready". However, the Commander had her interview info uploaded by the end of the week.

Yup, now you wait... Best of luck!
Thanks! At least waiting for his AFROTC and AROTC board results will keep us occupied while we wait for SA decisions, right? I'm also checking the TAMU system everyday waiting on that decision too. Plus, a couple of months to wait for nominations. Oh, the waiting!!

Amazing!! I'm not a grad or a native but I was still SO excited. It seems like every grad we know was at the game. We went to the New Mexico game and ds was not thrilled to sit through a blowout. He told me that Saturday's game should have been the game we went to in person. Unfortunately, no friends offered us their tix for that matchup. LOL.

My DS is kicking himself for NOT going. He's a senior, but he went to a Willie Nelson concert instead, expecting Alabama to beat them.

Yes I do recommend you click on the tile to see if your board ready.
The tile has said APPLICATION STATUS IS ELIGIBLE even before the interview.
