hi all, my son is applying for a NROTC scholorship. i see that the deadline for submission is January 31. i'm sure that there is an advantage to getting it in sooner than later as the selection board must use a 'rolling' admission. i hope he is not at too much of a disadvantage. he has a Blue & Gold officer contact as he is also applying to the USNA. we've looked through the NROTC application and read about giving information to a 'recruiter'. where would we find the recruiter who handles the NROTC program? my son has been accepted to Penn State University Park and has finished all of his requirements for the USNA application (DoDMERB, CFA, etc.) so i guess that he has a good start. does he have to notify DoDMERB of his interest in an NROTC scholorship? any advice is appreciated. thanks.
