    hello,

    I have submitted my NROTC App, just waiting to hear back now. I am waiting on improved ACT / SAT Scores for the army scholarship. Is it possible to turn in my army App and then update it with my new SAT Scores? Or is it a "once its boarded - its boarded" deal? Also... If you do not make the army first board, can you be re-boarded just like the NROTC scholarships?

    From my understanding, once you've been boarded that's it. You can't be "reboarded."

    However you can add the sat/act scores after you have been boarded and they will count toward the scholar portion of your application.

    If you are not awarded a scholarship by a board, you are automatically re-boarded for the next board.

    Huh... I asked the same question from the "contact us" portion of the application. I recieved the answer i stated above.
    I understand you know what you are talking about though.
    Now I wonder about the "contact us" option and if its accurate...

    There might be confusion on the meanings of boarded here. One is probably once your application is scored and "board ready" it cannot be re-scored and this updates (re-boarding) are not permitted or ignored. I know Navy allows updates to SAT and ACT scores throughout the process. Another is the one I mentioned where a scholarship is not awarded on, say, the first board and you are reconsidered on the next board. I have seen re-boarded used in both contexts.

    You don't get "reboarded". What happens is that you're placed on the Order of Merit List (OML), and you are considered for a scholarship offer after each board. If you submit new test scores your OML score may change a little bit. What won't change is the score the board gave you or your PMS interview score.
