    I have a few simple questions on AROTC. I am currently a Junior in High School.

    1) Can CFA results from summer leader seminar at a service academy be used for the rotc application?

    2) When is the best time to start applying for the scholarship?

    3) If I don't get the national AROTC scholarship, how do I get/apply for local AROTC scholarship for a particular college?

    4) When should I take the medical exam?

    Thank you for your time! Greatly appreciated. :)

    1) No.

    2) As soon the application opens up. Go to their website now and find out.

    3) You go to school on your own dime, or someone else's, and then work your butt off in every way and make yourself look good to the cadre, and then they might select you for a partial scholarship when and if they get some money.

    4) When they tell you to. If you're only applying for a ROTC scholarship, you only take the medical exam once you're awarded a scholarship. If you're applying also to one of the service academies, there's a good chance you will take one for them anyways which can be used for ROTC. In the latter case, you don't have to do anything, as you will have already taken the medical exam.

    1. You'll take a PFT sometime after you apply.

    2. Best to start your application sometime between April and June before senior year. App usually opens in Spring.

    3. If you don't get a National Scholarship you don't apply for a campus based scholarship, you show up to school, enroll in Army ROTC class and hope more scholarships are available. The Battalion you join may have a formal application process, but you should plan to enroll in the class to compete.

    4. You'll take the exam when they tell you to, usually after you are offered a scholarship. If you don't get an offer your physical will happen after you enroll. Unless you are applying for an SA.
