    Hello everyone!

    So I was accepted for a 3-year type 2 scholarship through the jan board (yay!) I know the 4-years get paid all 4 years with the scholarship, so do 3-year scholarship winners also get the pay all four years so as to help with tuition or are we gonna have to find other means of making a salary while at frosh year college?

    Much thanks in advance! :D

    You are completely on your own financially for the first year.

    The one thing for Type 2 3 yr candidates that also applied for the AFA be very mindful of that date on your DodMerb physical. Many AFA candidates take them in the summer and if you go this route by the time you contract it would be past the 2 yr marker, thus it will not be accepted. You will need to go through the DodMerb process again.

    If you took it in Nov., you would be considered valid, since most will contract sept/oct. Took it in Aug and they are probably going to ask you to take a new one.

    What does this mean to you? Hold up on being contracted that can take months to clear up the paperwork. No contract...no money, including tuition.

    I took it in October with a Remedial in January, so does that mean they would take the remedial part as contract or no?

    I am not sure, but my guess would be October is your DodMerb date because there are alot of parts to that test, including vision and hearing.

    I would contact Maxwell and ask them that question. Timing is going to be everything for you because it will come down to contract date. Make sure you do not lose your waiver paperwork.

    Caveat: also realize although that was the policy a few yrs ago (only good for 2 yrs) it may now be longer and this could all be moot.
