    Does anyone know if the Ole Miss NROTC unit has a policy of not allowing non-scholarship students to continue in Advanced Standing through their junior and senior years to completion and commissioning? At this time, they only have one non-scholarship Midshipman in Advanced Standing.

    The cadre at the university does not make the final decision regarding Advanced Standing. As an NROTC midshipman you submit an application to be considered for Advanced Standing. Evaluations/recommendations from the PNS (at least), and probably the MOI as well, are included as part of the application. The decision on who gets advanced standing is made by a national board. At least that's how I understand the process. It certainly is the process followed at my DS's unit and I do know several midshipmen who were awarded advanced standing this year.

    So my surmise is that only 1 college programmer midshipman at that unit was competitive for advanced standing. That may or may not indicate anything about the quality of the unit itself.

    EDIT: It's quite possible that midshipmen who did not receive a scholarship decided continuing to advanced standing was therefore not worth the effort. There are many reasons why only 1 midshipman is on advanced standing.
