    At this point, if DS's status still reads Boarded, is it more than likely he has not been awarded a scholarship? I am not sure if they upload winner status's all at once or if they post as they make the decision. Just wondering if anyone knows how this last board will go.

    Read through the other thread made by clarkson army, says that results will be announced around mid next week. At this point only the battalions know but they don't have permission to contact the winners (except the ethically challenged ones)

    My son heard on last board last year and it was after Easter, which was April 5th. The waiting is brutal. Clarksarmy said it would happen this week and yes, the forum will blow up. Hold tight.

    Thank you for all your responses! If he doesn't receive a scholarship he will still join ROTC this fall and apply for the scholarship next year!
    Good luck to everyone!

    @hockeym3, My DS last year didn't even apply for an AROTC scholarship. He got TWE'd one year ago from USNA, and did not receive the NROTC/MO scholarship for The Citadel. Between all his activities he did not have time to apply.

    He ended up non-contract AROTC at his plan C school and within 3 months of beginning his Fall Semester, earned a campus based AROTC 3 year AD scholarship that by January was extended an additional half year.

    He is happier than can be and doing well.
    Plan C became Plan A+

    Best of luck to your DS.

    I am currently in the ROTC "Boarded" status which would have been considered by the 3rd Review Board Committee. Is there anyway of finding out if I have been selected prior to my status being update on ROTC account page? I also received a nomination from West Point. I am in a highly competitive state- Virginia and was wait-listed to USMA. I am anxious to hear if I received an ROTC to my next school!

    At this point it probably will still say boarded. Basically no one has been notified if they were winners on the 3rd board. That is great about West Point. Good luck with it. My son got the dreaded letter he was not chosen, but he did have a nomination. Be Proud of your accomplishments ! Good for you :) And good luck with whatever you chose.

    Unfortunately right now it is just a waiting game. We have been in your shoes last year as my son waited to hear. It should be this week from other threads.

    Results are up. I am so proud of my son to be receiving this. My only question is he put down 2 schools on his application but only one school is listed here. By any chance will he be able to use this scholarship to the other school? If not I am still so very happy for him.

    Thanks Flying_duck for posting your results. I checked my DD'portal, and just found out she got a 3 year AD to her 1st, 3rd and 4th choice schools for nursing!

    Thanks to everyone for all of the advice and support, it helped with knowing what to expect, and even to know that getting the scholarship is just the first step to a long process, I am sure turning to this board will continue to be helpful for my daughter and her Dad and I.

    And to those that do not receive a scholarship, this board is full of people who have experiences where it still worked out great, so please keep the faith!

    He can request a transfer, depends on if the other school has any slots and Cadet Command
