I have received some conflicting answers when talking to “real” people and can't seem to find a definitive answer in checking previous posts... How exactly are scholarships awarded...I know that all the applicants are boarded and given a score. My question is, is there a list of "certified applicants" that have met the boards criteria and are eligible to receive an offer and the individual schools pick from that list? Or does Cadet Command arbitrarily decide this particular cadet will receive an offer to this or these schools? Are there schools that have unfilled positions that will contact an applicant that has not listed them in their 7 school choices? Thanks!
