    Does anybody know how long it takes to find out if you received a scholarship after being boarded? Thanks.

    They emailed tentative notification dates when I submitted. I heard today after meeting the 2nd (end of JAN) board deadline.

    Around two to three weeks after the board meets, seems to be a little different every board. Could be longer but probably not shorter.

    I received Type 1 AFROTC scholarship today, along with some other people on this forum. I know I met the 2nd board.

    Thanks and congratulations.

    I think the OP may have been asking about AROTC, he didn't make it clear which ROTC program.

    Roger that. Your knowledge is superior to mine on AROTC I'm sure.

    So I see you have both a USMA Appointment and a AFROTC Type 1 Scholarship. Which direction are you leaning, that Apache Avatar could be telling.

    I'm still waiting on USAFA, my top choice. However I am really interested in flying helicopters. I would willingly take the USMA route if USAFA doesn't work out.

    I am talking about AFROTC, sorry if that was confusing. They sent me an email saying my application is confirmed complete and had a list of scholarship board dates still left and when I could potentially hear from them. Just my personal email address. PM if you want more details.

    Thank you! I'll be sure to let you know if I receive one from the AROTC, I'd assume that I would with the AFROTC generally being more selective but you never know!

    Yes that would be great! I am also pretty hopeful of winning after being nominated to USNA and seeing the stats of a couple of friends who won a 4 year offer, but I guess you never know until you know haha.
