I have been viewing this website for quite sometime and first want to thank everyone for taking the time to educate so many parents and future cadets. My question is in regards to advanced standing; my son will enter NROTC most likely as a college programmer (going on my GI Bill so no biggie there). I am confident he would earn at least a 2 year scholarship, but also believe in hoping for best and preparing for worst. I had read earlier posts about contacting possible schools and requesting rates of cadets not being offered advanced standing and this is what I have done. Every school I have contacted (4) advised that ALL students maintaining the required GPA and PFT scores had achieved a side load or obtained advanced standing; yet I read reports on here about advanced standing being so limited. Is anyone actually aware of a case where a cadet met all the requirements yet still was forced out of the program? Thank you again for everyone's time and best to all.
