My son recently had his NROTC interview which according to him went very well. Surprisingly short however, the interviewer commented on how he could see his passion to serve and how well balanced his resume was. He's a swimmer, active in the church choir and youth group, class officer, broadcasting class at school, boys state and a Page for the state legislature. He has high GPA and AP classes. He also did Coast Guard AIM and Navy STEM. The recruiters was very helpful in guiding and encouraging him. I was a little surprised they wanted to do the interview so quickly. Or maybe this isn't quick? My question is what's next and the process in selection. How much weight does the interviewer's recommendation carry? He was point blank with my son on how he would recommend him and how impressed he was with his background. He is also looking at the USNA and CGA.
