    Last week the AFROTC board met, the board results have not been released to us yet. But Son has received emails from several detachments congratulating him on his scholarship. The amusing part of these emails, 2 are from schools he did not apply to but asking him to bring his scholarship to their school. Each was offering room and board plus the tutition overage. Zero cost for the four years.

    I wasn't sure how AFROTC worked except that he had to give them 3 majors to pick from, he picked three tech majors. We still don't know what major he was selected for. One of the emails was from a school he had spoken with this summer he emailed them a couple questions and they told him it was a Type 2 -4 year, son forgot to ask the major, lol.

    So my point, with AFROTC you pick you school but not your major. Some of the other ROTCs the school picks you.

    Congradulations to your son! I had a similar experience, except my AFROTC paperwork showed up a couple days before a bunch of college's stuff.

    raimius,

    Thanks for the congrats. Son now has a solid plan B, but waiting on CGA and AFA. Did the schools contact you my snail mail too?

    Yes, they did. I actually called USAFA to ask a question, and found out that I had an appointment.
