    I just (3:07pm Central) received an email from Cadet Command indicating that I have received an Army ROTC scholarship. It says I will receive a letter with further details in 7-10 days. The e-mail does not say to which school or whether it is a 3- or 4-year scholarship.

    I checked my portal and do not see any new messages or information.

    I guess this means the October Board results are out.

    That is certainly a post that deserves all CAPS and a few smiley faces. Congrats to you and everyone posting.

    Now the fun will really begin. Enjoy the rest of your senior year.

    Unfortunately, None of that info came in the email. It was 1.5 lines long with no information other than some type of scholarship was awarded.

    It will probably take today and tomorrow for them to get all the emails out. Your official letter will most likely come in a week or so. Remember you will have 30 days from the date on the letter to accept or decline. If you are one of those that are still waiting for notification from a SA or another ROTC, make sure you still accept the scholarship while your waiting, you can decline at a later date if need be.
