    What did the Syracuse ROTC recruiting officer tell you when you asked him. I'm going to bet he'll tell you when you come to school in the fall and enroll in the class you'll have the same chance any other enrolled cadet has to compete for a contract, and maybe even a scholarship, if there are any available for that year group.
    I know that's what I would tell you if you told me you'd like to transfer to Clarkson.

    This really is the best piece of advice on any thread in this section. As much as we can speculate on a wide variety of issues, situations, and topics, most questions like this really depend on the individual school and candidate, most of which we cannot know from the Internet. Yes, it gives us something to talk about (and keeps the forum around), and the answers one gets here may reassure them, it does not change reality. I can tell you what your possible chances are at my school as I used to work with the ROO, but I know nothing about Syracuse ROTC or what that brigade is working with. It may seem as if we are jerks in thread after thread telling candidates/cadets to talk straight to the ROO and/or cadre, but they really are the only ones that can help you.

    This is what ROO's do all day, everyday. A phone call to them will square you away quick.

    For the record...I'm the school two hours North of Syracuse. Our two programs sandwich Fort Drum. I've spent a few College fairs with their ROO and he's a pretty good guy. Not all ROOs are going to be real helpful, but a good ROO at a good program is going to find the time to answer your questions. He may even find the time to post on discussion boards and write a blog to help answer your questions or point you in the right direction.

    I can tell you that this year there are no contracts available for MSII at SU. Some MSIII also had to left the program at the beginning of the term.

    Getting a contract is getting tough, and I'm not even talking about scholarships.
