Hi! I am a 17 year old Junior in High School, and I've finally made up my mind, and I've decided that I want to apply for NROTC in college. I've just got a few questions, so please bear with me! 1. I have not yet had an appointment with a recruiter. I know that I probably should have met with one now, but breaking the news to my Dad kept stopping me. What's a good time to talk to a recruiter, especially if I'm interested in an NROTC scholarship? 2. With an NROTC scholarship, when is the application date if my senior/graduating years are 2014-2015? 3. Am I able to do NROTC even if I don't get a scholarship? Also, if I get another scholarship from a school with an NROTC Program, can I still do the program and have that scholarship? 4. As far as preparation for NROTC, I've started working out (I'm currently in Track and training to run the Grand Canyon), and I'm studying for my next ACT. My ACT score was 25, and my average GPA so far for my Junior Year as a whole has been 3.8 . I'm a leader for both my Cross Country Team next year, as well as a leader in two separate positions in my choir. Is there anything else I should be doing to prepare for NROTC? If you have any other helpful information, let me know. Thanks!
