Reserve Officer Training Corps Profile

Do you want to be all that you can be - in the army, the navy or the air force? Then check out what the ROTC can offer you!

ROTC - An Overview

The Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) prepares young peeps to serve in the military. The ROTC is a college program that's offered at over 1,000 colleges and universities across the US. They offer scholarships in the Army, Navy and Air Force. You can apply for a 4-year scholarship while you're in high school, but you must meet the general qualifications.
  • Be a US citizen.
  • Be 17-26 years old.
  • Have a high school GPA of at least 2.5.
  • Have a high school diploma.
  • Pass the physical exams.
  • Agree to serve in the military after graduating college.
  • ROTC - Why Should I Join the ROTC?

    Getting up at the crack of dawn to have a drill sergeant yell at you to drop and give him 20 may not exactly be appealing, but if you're looking for a chance to serve your country, pay for college and find a rewarding career after graduation, then the ROTC is the path for you.

In order to be accepted, you have to take the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test, which is a standardized test that's similar to the SAT.

    Tell that girl that she looks so horrible she makes roadkill look beautiful. Clap your hands really loud with nobody looking and then say "HEY WHY'D YOU HIT ME?" (Don't thank me thank Diary of a Wimpy Kid) Tell someone. Tell a teacher or somebody Or ignore that excuse for a person and get on with your life without her I mean, it.
