    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at US Navy.

    Interview Details

    The process is pretty standardized. SAT and ACT scores are a big component of acceptance. In addition, you must be physically fit and pass a medical examination. I highly advise you apply for NROTC scholarships in the spring of your Jr. year in high school. In addition, I would recommend applying for the school of your choice in the spring also. Early birds get the worm.
