    I have decided to wait until after football season to finish my AROTC application due to a lack of time to work on it (as football in central Ohio takes up pretty much all of your time). Therefore I will not have my app in for the first board meeting.... Does this look bad? Will this have any effect on the possible outcome? I realize that missing 1/3 of the board meeting dates is not a good thing, but does this diminish my chances in any way? I've got a strong resume, and feel as if I'm a good candidate, just curious. Thanks!

    I'd say a lot of people probably miss the first board for reasons similar to yours, and still get scholarships. So if you are well qualified I wouldn't stress about it too much. Besides, I hear they only award 250 of them from the October board anyway, but that could just be rumors.

    Do what you're comfortable doing and move forward.
    DS applied first board, received 4 year, and then did not have to worry.
