Question: When is the timeframe we should begin to inquire about your consulting services?
Answer: Generally, the ROTC scholarship application opens online between April and June for juniors who will be rising seniors in high school. You should contact us between April and December to start application process so that you can be evaluated by the Services for the ROTC scholarship in the Fall or latest after the first of the year.
Question: What is the difference between what is presented in your “Insider’s Guide” book on Amazon and what you provide with your consulting services?
Answer: Our consulting services are helpful in a number of ways. Clients state that the interview preparation via video conferencing and scholarship essay review are the two most important services we provide outside of the book.
Question: Aside from interview preparation and essay review, what other areas do you help with in the process?
Answer: We help with all areas of the application. Maximizing the point totals, advising whether to retake standardized tests, help with any psychological testing, general medical questions, best fit schools where scholarship benefits can be maximized, and connecting the applicant with currently serving officers and ROTC cadets to learn more about life as a cadet/midshipman and future officer.
Question: How is your experience as a former ROTC cadre helpful in connecting with ROTC programs?
Answer: As former military personnel and persons knowledgeable about ROTC, we are able to call individual university ROTC programs and “talk the lingo” about ROTC and find out information about specific programs that a candidate would not otherwise be able to determine. We can also talk directly to the ROTC Service component headquarters to help ease the application process.
Question: How much do your services cost?
Answer: We charge a flat $2500 for Army applications and $1500 for Air Force and Navy ROTC applications for guiding the candidate through the entire process up to the awarding of a scholarship. Reduced rates for multiple applications.
Question: What percentage of your consulting clients win a scholarship?
Answer: This is our fourth year in advising clients and over 95% have won a scholarship. If we take you on as a client, you will win a scholarship or we will refund all your money.
