    Well, it is hard to imagine it was almost a year ago my daughter received her scholarship AROTC offer. A year in which we had to get a 3-year AD upgraded to a 4-year scholarship at her #1 school, multiple DODMERB issues and remedials, then to top it off she injured her leg this summer and had to start a long rehab which prevented her from passing the APFT when school started. Today, she passed the APFT and can contract!

    congrats!!!

    How did you manage to upgrade 3 year AD to regular 4 year? I did not even know that it's possible.

    That's awesome for her and I know exactly how you feel after going thru the remedial and then waiver process. Stressful stuff....

    I received a very nice call today as well. My daughter called to tell me that she received the full reimbursement for her tuition, book money for the entire year and her stipends kicked in!!!! :biggrin:
