I recently checked my AROTC scholarship status online to find that I was offered scholarships to two relatively expensive, private, out of state schools (University of Southern California and Emory.) They were actually my top two choices. The problem is... I haven't been accepted for admissions to either of these schools. USC rejected me and Emory put me on their waitlist. Strangely, the in state, public school that did accept me, to which I have already submitted a deposit to, is not on that list. I did apply for an AROTC scholarship at that school, although I ranked it much lower on my preferences. No other schools have offered me scholarships. At this point, I am very concerned that I may end up not being able to use the ROTC scholarship to fund my college education.
