    I noticed in the USMA candidate questionnaire there is a question that asks if you also desire to compete for an ROTC scholarship...if you click Yes and don't get in to USMA, would this also be an app for a scholarship or would you still have to fill out the ROTC scholarship app...or what's the deal?:confused:

    my modest, modest opinion is that the question shows them how willing you are (or say you are) to get commissioned as a 2LT in the army.

    My strong opinion is that one who wants to go to USMA better want to go ROTC, even as a back-up.

    Titan w/e, you are totally wrong and your information misguided. I applied for the class of 2013.... did not get accepted. However, I received a phone call almost immediatley following my denial stating that I had gotten close and that Cadet Command wanted to offer me a direct ROTC scholarship. No application process or anything after what I had done for the point. So yes to the original question if you click yes you are entered for a ROTC schoarship free of interview! I took it and will be attending UT knoxville in the fall even though I have just finished my reapplication for the class of 2014.

    i stand corrected, then. I guess it's case by case, because i'm looking at my ROTC application (completely separate) right now and i'm assuming they wouldn't send it to me unless they wanted me to look at it/fill it out...

    Whoa! If a AROTC scholarship is you back up then apply for it now. Don't wait.
    It's true that all "fully qualified not selected" West Point candidates are offered a National 4 year ROTC scholarship. They may use it at the school of their choice, as long as it offers AROTC.
    However, you aren't "qualified" yet and may not be qualified nor know if you are qualified until after the AROTC deadline.
    It is in your best interest to apply to both West Point and AROTC concurrently.
