Hello everyone! I am glad to have found this website (along with many other parents I'm sure) regarding trying to find info on the scholarship process as well as general and specific info on NROTC "life". My son has applied for the NROTC Scholarship. Like many others, I'm just a very anxious parent. I also realize we may or may not hear anything until April or May. As if this question hasn't been asked enough... (yes, here we go again!) I am wondering about his chances...(which I also realize a conclusive answer is not really possible), just wanting to get a few opinions from people that obviously have more experience and time around this program than we do. All his application material is turned in, and the portal reads the usual "no determination has been made" etc... We are not sure if his info got to the October Board in time or not due to the local recruiter "losing" all his info, and after a two week delay, having an officer step in to get everything cleared up and all the hard copies re-submitted... His GPA is a little on the low side... 3.2 (slacked his freshman year but worked hard to pick it up) His ACT is 27, with a SAT conversion to a 530 Math and a 680 Verbal. He listed his intended major as tier 1. (engineering) His 1st choice school is also in state (Auburn University) and he has been accepted. He received excellent letters of recommendation from his teachers and counselor. (hard working, committed, dedicated, well rounded student etc...) He works part time and received a "tremendous" letter of recommendation from his employer. (hard working, dedicated, team player, initiative, leadership qualities, and is actually in a management position (locally owned restaurant). He will have played 4 years of Varsity Tennis including last year and this year as team Captain. 3 Years of JROTC at his high school. The usual community work etc... His essays were very good (he wrote them himself) and had his English teacher go over them with him. His interview went very, very well. Lasted almost 45 mins. His interviewer told him that he would give him a high recommendation, and that he thought his application would be very competitive towards getting the scholarship. That is about it in a nutshell. Thanks for taking the time to read! The waiting game is on!
