I've been trying to log into the NROTC scholarship application page (from what I can tell, the 2012 cycle began on April 1), but every time I do so, I am directed to a page that says "The application is closed for the 2011 Scholarship Year. Check back periodically for dates to apply for the 2012 Scholarship Year." Not sure how to remedy this. Is the application simply not up yet, or am I being blocked from it because I registered with the site before April 1? I also have a question about listing schools. Navy's website indicated that, in its own scholarship application, we apply to detachments instead of individual schools. Is this also the case for Army and Air Force? I am concerned because my AROTC app ranked several schools that are in the same det through a crosstown agreement. If I can free up additional slots, I certainly want to do so. Again, going off of Navy's instructions, I 'projected' my senior year activities for the AROTC app, as I am still a junior. Is this an acceptable move? Last of all: when the application is complete, are we meant to contact a local rep? I know I am meant to interview with Army at some point, and I have seen the parts of the NROTC supplementary papers that ask for the signature of a 'witnessing official'; does this mean that I need to bring in these papers to a rep before mailing them?
