    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone has any updates on the NROTC 2 year board/Advanced standing board? I am currently a rising junior waiting to hear results back to see if I was granted either the scholarship or AS. Thank you.

    Don't know when the board(s) meet this year. I do know, a few years back, midshipmen in my son's unit didn't hear until mid-August. YMMV.

    I heard it could be end of July beginning of August. Did you go through DodMERB process yet?

    From my understanding the 3-year selection board conducted from 16-20 July and the 2 year board will be this week. I am not sure if the results from both boards will be released separately or all at one time.

    DS was notified by his unit last year about August 15, but I think that may have been later than previous years.

    I'm confident that the results will go to the units and the units will contact the applicants to notify them.

    All I know is that, for the 2 year board it was 92 scholarships and 118 advanced standing slots available, which is awesome compared to the number from last year and 2 years ago!

    We are still waiting. DS was notified last year he did not get a scholarship the first or 2nd week in August. DH has been told that over the next few years more scholarships are going to be awarded. Best of luck to everyone!

    My daughter's CO called her 10 minutes ago. She got the 2 year NROTC sideload schlorship! I was so happy that I cried. She was just hopeful to get advanced standing. I was so worried that she wouldn't be able to continue if she didn't get anything. She had 2 years of calculus completed and 1 year of physics. I hope that everyone on here is awarded a scholarship or advanced standing!
