Is there any new word about the new Naval ROTC program at Arizona State University (ASU) for 2010?
Well...I got a 4 year ARMY ROTC scholarship to Arizona State. I applied for a NROTC one as well but did not get it. I have accepted my AROTC one and passed all my DoDMERB stuff so I plan on attending this Fall. Are you going to be attending ASU?
I received an 4yr-NROTC scholarship to ASU for Fall 2010 and I visited ASU last month and talked w/ them about the NROTC unit and they're still setting it up. Looks like they have a CO but I'm not sure about much else. The lady who I spoke with just told me I could email her any questions and she'll foward them to the Capt. Haven't emailed any q's yet but will soon.
-BTW, you're from AK? hah me too...
Hahaha no way? you from Anchorage, Alaska? if u are i go to Service High. and yea im heading towards ASU. Cant wait to be ASU's first NROTC class of 2014.
Ha yeah I'm set for ASU, toured it, signed up for housing and all that..I just gotta fly down for orientation. That's cool though I thought I'd be the only AK kid in the NROTC unit down there haha...anyways yeah I'm not in Anch tho I'm from North Pole..
What are you guys majoring in at ASU? Aerospace engineering for me.
I'm majoring in biochem. So did you figure out which dorm your stayin at??
I'm in the Palo Verde residence hall with all the engineering kids.
Same here: Palo Verde Main most likely. Stated my major to be Civil Engineering, but maybe considering a switch into Industrial or Mechanical engineering.
mko1991 I sent you a PM.
Ha well see where I get put as a biochem major. I put hassy down as my first preference..
aw lucky. my Junior friend at ASU recommend hassy cuz its right across from the recreation center and etc. and that dorm has the best tutoring center downstairs.
Yeah, same reasons why I picked it too.. are you guys going down for orientation? I think I'm goin like late May-early June. I heard if you go too late you get stuck with bad class times..sucks
Yeah I'm going to the July 3rd aerospace engineering orientation. It's the soonest that I could make it too, since I'll be coming for Michigan.
How long is orientation anyway?
It's an all day thing. You gotta sign up on your ASU account.
It's only for one day. Maybe not worth flying for but I think it's the best way for learning about more about ASU and signing up for classes n all that. I think I'm going may 28th or June 2nd
cool cool. did u guys already take the ALEKS test for math placement? and if u did was it mostly Calc and Precalc and was it easy? sorta worried :|
You can take it twice. I took it twice, and the first time I did horrible. I mean horrible. I went and talked to my math teacher, and took my time with it the second time, and did a lot better. I guess for my major, aerospace engineering, you're supposed to be in calculus for engineers freshman year, however I missed it by 3 points. So I have to take a precalculus class freshman year. I have to makeup a math class later on, either taking it over the summer, online, or possibly in place of an elective course during my junior or senior year. So I will be a math class behind everyone else I guess, but my academic advisor said not to worry. The math placement itself is very hard, and you actually have to make graphs. It took me 5 hours to take, no joke. But I took my time on every problem. I had to look some stuff up online too and I used a calculator. Take your time with it, and you should be ok. I am currently in Functions, Stats, and trigonometry in HS. It's all one class at my school, and it's the class below my HS's precalc class. So scoring a precalc on the placement test is right where I should be, I suppose.
LOL wait so u can take as long as you want to finish it?
Anyway, im sure it wont be bat to be a year behind, as long as u take Calculus.
