    DS was a 2nd board winner of a 3yr AROTC scholarship, accepted the offer, completed DoDMerb "qualified". Portal under "selection status" now reads 4yr Scholarship and Offer Accepted where it used to read 3 Year Advanced Designee Scholarship Is this an upgrade?

    Yes, congratulations!
    What will you do with all the tuition money you have saved?
    (You still will need to pay for room and board unless the school has a special arrangement).

    Well that's fantastic news! Thanks! School already agreed to pay all room and board and had already front loaded his academic aid to pay for year 1 when he was on a 3 year.

    First off congrats... yes, likely an upgrade. While not unheard of it does happen on the national level. I would confirm it is now a 4YR. and have him start practicing proper PU and SU form and Run Forrest Run.....

    Great Advice! Any idea how he should confirm that it is now officially a 4yr? Should he call the battalion?

    Yes, I do suggest your DS check in with the ROO and the University Bursars office. The ROO or PMS might even contact your DS first.

    What school did your DS end up choosing? MSOE, Idaho or UNR? (My DS is at UNR).

    I will have him do that if he hasn't already received a call. Having said that, when he won originally the ROO called immediately with the good news.

    He chose MSOE as he was already a committed lacrosse recruit. DS is actually on his way back from Reno as I type this; think he was at UNR yesterday with friends.

    Turns out that the ROO called him at 6AM today but he missed the call. Upgrade confirmed now he really needs to get to work!
    Thanks all.

    If your millenial is like mine, he barely knows how to use voice mail, but can text like the wind!
