    Ok, I'm a bit confused.. Husband. Just asked when DS's official obligation to the Army begins. He received a 4yr AROTC scholarship and has contracted. For some reason I remember it being said that his obligation begins when he walks back on campus for his sophomore year. However, he stated it doesn't begin until his junior year. By obligation I mean must commission or repay the scholarship.. Can someone clear this up for me? Thanks

    Thanks for the link... That answers my question. So first day of sophomore year..

    I guess I started second guessing myself when I thought about USMA. Is that the first day of junior year?

    Yes. Or thereabouts at least.

    Yes, the obligation for USMA cadets starts the start of their Junior year.

    That's what I thought and why I started second guessing myself.

    Do you guys know why the years differ?

    None whatsoever. You'd think there would be a rationale, but then we ARE talking about the feds.
