    Looks like CC is doing things a bit different this time. It seems like they are including the name of the school the scholarship is awarded at the same time rather then having two separate updates.

    Did the status page say whether it is a 4yr or 3yr.

    Congratulations, great job.

    AROTC Scholarship

    Just checked portal. DD received Army Scholarship to Duke University. :shake:

    Only problem is that Duke mailed her the TWE last week. :frown:

    So what typically happens next?

    First off, Congratulations to your daughter.

    Looks like this board will be getting real busy soon.

    First thing to do is to contact the ROTC battalion at the school she wants to attend and talk to them. The transfers are done through CC. Clarkson has some great posts about transfers if you search through his posts.

    Is the school she wants in the same brigade as the school she was awarded the scholarship.
    Is the cost of the school she wants more or less then the one awarded to.
    These are some of the things that can effect a transfer as well as whether the school she wants has room for more cadets.

    One other question, when your daughters's status page changed did it also list the school she received the scholarship on the same page, if so, that's something new and could be why it took longer to see a status change.

    Good Luck and again, Congratulations to your daughter.

    Looks like there are 3 scholarship awards so far, things should get hoping here very soon.

    Status Change

    Yes, it did indicate the school on the same page as the status page. No mention of 3 or 4 year scholarship. Thanks for the info regarding transferring the scholarship to another school.

    That sure is a lot better then how it was done before. You had to wait almost a week from the first status change to see which schools the scholarship was awarded. This way seems a lot better.

    Were you offered more then one school or was it just the one.

    Congratulations to your son.

    Your doing better then I did, last year in Oct. my son's status changed at about 9:30 am, he was at school. I think the people in the office next to me thought a cat died after I let out a "Whoop". After an hour or so I couldn't hold back, I texted him knowing he would get it at lunch, I just said "Hey you better start working on those push ups now" he called back when he could, said he was dancing around school for the rest of the day.

    Have fun telling him, enjoy your evening.

    Well, I've seen VaTech, Duke and now Ohio State. I remember in past boards that there was a *theory* that people living on the east coast seemed to get their results posted first. Not that OSU is really the east coast but interesting nonetheless.

    I know with my daughter (2) years ago, her results didn't pop up until day 4 and we can't get any farther west as we're only 6 miles from the Pacific :biggrin:

    Here is what it looks like Cadet Command did...all the applicants that were at the top of the OML, but didn't get offers because of the schools they listed didn't have allocations got 3 AD offers. Not sure where they plan to get the extra money, but in my opinion this is a good fix for a quandary they should have seen coming.
    Good to see the status page changed...now it's time to reel in all my applicants with Clarkson offers.

    I got one for the University of Vermont. I absolutely did not expect this at all. Wow. I'm stunned. in a good way!! It's still a mess though, because I'm also considering UChicago and I've been waitlisted at Middlebury. When I applied for the scholarship, I wasn't even really considering Midd. so I didn't put it down on the application. I'm kicking myself for that. For right now though, I'm so happy and so excited to have this opportunity and I guess it's time that I tell my parents I applied...

    Ha. Yeah...I didn't want to open that can of worms without actually knowing for sure if I had to. I'm trying to figure out how best to approach this: hey, Mom, by the way, I might be a contracted Army cadet by this time next year. That cool?

    Got the status change and son awarded scholarship to Penn State. That was second choice, but son has committed to play lacrosse at Christopher Newport. What are the odds that he could transfer the scholarship to CNU? It is less expensive than Penn State, but I guess it depends on whether they have a slot, correct? Gotta make some calls tomorrow morning!
    Congrats to all who are receiving the good news!

    Here's a question. Do status changes occur school by school? Is there a possibility of seeing an offer from another school pop up on the status page?
