    Has anyone’s DS/DD gotten travel orders for NSI session one?
    DS got his but we have no idea how they work or what to do next.

    Michelle (the awesome HR rep for NROTC at OSU) said govt hasn't approved their travel orders yet. I called, as my husband and I were planning on doing a fun Chicago weekend out there then go to graduation before flying home around same time as DS. We couldn't book flights without knowing DS flights. She gave me his potential itinerary but it's subject to change due to needing that govt approval. They have a good sized group going from OSU..perhaps this is why it is taking a while for travel orders to be approved. This is classic military..hurry up and wait.

    Awesome intel. Thanks. My daughter is getting anxious about planning and packing. She's on the OSU group chat and that is comforting.

    My daughter just got an email saying Indoc was cancelled - no funding. I don’t know if that’s everyone or just some in her unit.

    Yep, our DD got the same email today. NSI is cancelled for OSU midshipman. She was at orientation all day so she didn't see the email until this evening.

    Zoinks - why? I certain hope this isn't a broader issue - my son has built all of his summer plans around going to NSI, He does already have his travel orders. University of Washington.

    Jacksonville Univ. candidate here. I got my flight itinerary and a vague packing list and thats about it. Anyone have any more information on if this cancellation is bigger than OSU?

    I should say our DD was cancelled I am not 100% certain it was the entire OSU unit.

    Our daughter received an email today. She was cancelled due to funding issues. Not certain if it's the entire unit.

    My daughter’s scholarship is intact - according to the email. Just the “trip” is cancelled.

    So it looks like 11 kids in the unit are attending NSI and 8 are staying behind. I'm trying to get my daughter to find out how they decided.

    Yeah I didn't think a scholarship would be impacted. I was just curious if it was possible it's a scholarship vs non-scholarship think. Evidently it's not. I'm still surprised I haven't seen the forums light up about similar letters, but perhaps more time is needed.

    I know. It's very curious. The other interesting thing is that in the lists - one female is in the "going" list and the other four females in the unit are in the "not going" list.

    I'm dumbfounded. It might be worth asking the unit. Seems to me this is legally a definite no-no if that's what they're doing. If there is another reason other than gender that just happens to impact only the women then that's a different story.

    I don't think it's gender based, but it is unfortunate. The unit reports who was chosen to go, and who was not chosen to go, was done randomly by NSI. I know they are upset with the outcome as well. Onto August and ROTC orientation now! It certainly changed our summer plans.

    Upsetting to us as well, but our DD finished her orientation to OSU and is in good spirits. She is excited and ready to get started in August.
