    Hello,
    I am currently in the process of completing my AROTC application but have not yet finished. I thought I only saved my application but I got a message the other week saying it had been received. I then used the contact page and asked them what this meant. I only got a generic response saying that for my application to be reviewed by the first board I needed to have my interview, test scores, physical fitness assessment, and transcripts sent in. If I don't send in this information in or complete my application by October 7th will my application be disqualified? I don't have enough time now to do my physical fitness assessment and interview before then because the administrator (my coach) and I are currently busy with football season. Could someone give me a solid answer or a path to take to ensure my application doesn't get disqualified? It would be very much appreciated! Thank you

    Your application will still be in the system, but you will not be considered for a scholarship by the first selection board in October. If you complete the requirements in time for the January Board, then your file will be considered during the 2nd board. Having your packet completed to be seen by all 3 boards gives you the best chance of selection, however, there are plenty of selectees in the past that have missed the 1st Board and have still be awarded scholarships.

    We were second board selectee. Get everything in and your DS can call and or email to verify. At least my DS did; although this online approach could close that line of communication.

    Okay thank you for your help. I will definitely have all of my paper work by December for the second board!

    Does anyone know how many are typically awarded first board? I heard around 250, but I'm not sure.
