NROTC scholarship help
Here are a few previous posts that may be helpful:
The Navy is looking for recommendations from you counselor, math and English teachers which will indicate your personal commitment to getting a good education. (Speak with those 11th grade teachers before you submit their names and email addresses.) Your activities should also indicate those characteristics as well as your leadership. Your essays will give you an opportunity to exemplify your courage, honor, and commitment. Be honest and sincere.
If you have begun the application, you will be on your recruiter's radar. Do your essays offline and perfect them before posting them online. There is a previous posting on this forum about conquering the "word count" so that you are not frustrated when putting your essays online.
Before submitting the application, proofread, proofread, proofread!
The SAT minimum requirement guidelines on the NROTC website are relatively low. Don't settle for low SAT scores. Shoot for those 600s or higher!
If you get everything done and have your interview by August or early September, you will be in the first rounds of review boards. Practice for and dress appropriately for your interview.
Think carefully about your list of colleges. I would suggest that you put a college that you feel you can get into and be happy at at the top of the list. But, I wouldn't make your "safe" school your #1 listing. The scholarship might be awarded before you get accepted to your schools--they are two different processes. [Remember that there is a possibility that you can switch your scholarship to another one on your list if you are assigned to a school you have decided is not right for you.]
If you have more questions, ask away, or you may pm me.
Good luck, and don't give up!
