    My son just received an AOG scholarship. His situation is a little weird. Somehow, when he was applying to SLS, he got put into an early physical category and had his physical on 1/31 instead of in July like everyone else. I know that the physicals are valid for two years, so if he doesn't get an appointment before that, it would be invalid.

    Does this mean that he has to re-do the whole medical application process (ughh)? If he got his appointment before January 31, presumably he would be ok, but things can take so long. He needed a waiver and didn't get it till Feb this year.

    I'm concerned that he will go through this prep year and end up getting rejected. He already has a ROTC scholarship to William and Mary. Thanks

    If he has been accepted to W&M and will be participating in ROTC why on earth would he consider a prep program? It was my understanding that the prep programs were for students that had academic deficiencies. Clearly that is not the case with your son. If he wants to reapply it seems that he would be in a better position doing it with one year at a school like W&M under his belt.

    An AOG scholarship is as close as you can get to a guarantee of being appointed next year.
