    Tell me about NROTC

    Im a high school student becoming a senior this year and was thinking about applying for the NROTC scholarship. Im still hesitnat about it so is ther anybody out there that is the NROTC program for college that that can tell me about the positives and negatives about the program?
    Like is the tuition totally free or are there some small fees i have to pay? Do the Naval Studies put a huge load ontop of your normal studies? Anything else that you feel you should need to include would be helpful If you answer please specify how long have you been in the program.

    I did Army ROTC, and had a lot of friends who did Navy. Do it. The classes are easy, you'll make a ton of friends if you're not a douche, college gets paid for, and you have a 50K$/yr job right out of college. Not bad by any measure. Go for it.

    Cons = having to wear your uniform to school at times, early wakings up, and summers are spent on cruises learning your job.

    Of course, in many instances, uniform = extra *****.

    I never really understood what ROTC was. I hear it's like going to a military academy without actually going to a military academy. Is this close?

    More or less, and from what I understand, it's a good way fast track your military career.

    Really does depend on the school, and whether it's Army or not.

    Navy usually means extra dick more than anything, though.

    It's like going to a military academy three times per week for one class.

    Just curious SFGOON which college did you go to for your ROTC, becuase im in Washington too and planning to go to UW. How was the application process? How flexible is the program when catering the classes that you choose? How long did you stay in the Army after college and what was the service like? What was your occupation in the army? What were your friends' occupations in the Navy?
    are you a sagoon by chance?

    I did it at the UW, the application process was short and sweet, but I was coming in with prior service. The program places academics first, and I incurred an eight year commitment, three active, three reserve, and two inactive reserve. The service was fun, but I got put on active duty and you may find yourself in the reserves or guard (you can get a contract that promises reserve or guard if you want.) I was comissioned into the Chemical Corps.

    **** you, I'll undo my 13 buttons and slap you in the face with my cock.


    But, actually, any NROTC is a great program, uniforms are awesome once they get the right fit, and everyone there is pretty friendly.
    And you get this awesome great paying job right out of college, and it gets paid for, what's the down side?
