Hi, I'm an advanced designee recipient of a 3 year Army ROTC scholarship. I don't want to sound "entitled" or anything, but are scholarship recipients guaranteed active duty? Ok I doubt you're "guaranteed" beyond a reasonable doubt, but shouldn't they be more likely? I mean, would the Army really pay 3 years full tuition (I'm going to a private school, so lots of money here) to have someone end up in the reserves or national guard? I'm not trying to sound arrogant or anything I'm genuinely curious. I'm more than willing to work for a competitive active duty spot (Was fully qualified but got denied from West Point this year, so I feel like I'm pretty committed), but I was just wondering if the Army factored in someone who worked hard on a scholarship vs. someone who just signs up for the class because its cool or something like that.
