    My son is a 3YR AD scholarship winner and has just started his freshman year. He said they recently told him that they would have a ceremony in Sept. during a football game for the scholarship contract signing. It was my understanding that 3YR AD's don't sign until there second year. Is this not correct? I'm sure he will ask about it, but I thought I'd put it out there to you guys. You always have good, quick information.

    Thanks for your help.

    Your correct about the 3 year AD Scholarship, these cadets don't contract until the beginning of their sophomore year.

    It could be that they are including your son in the ceremony because he did receive a 3 yr scholarship.

    Of course there is always the possibility they have upgraded your son to a 4 year, I would think they would have told him if they had. It might be worth it to have your son ask the cadre why he is being included in the ceremony.

    Thanks! I will tell him. Boy, that would be something if he were upgraded to a 4 yr! I won't hold my breath, though. Probably just lumped him in with everyone else.

    I'll keep you posted. Thanks for the super quick, helpful response!
