    For the army rotc 4-year scholarship application, do I need to have an interview by the december 31st review board deadline in order to meet that deadline, or do I just need to contact my first choice school by then?

    There is no 31 December deadline...here are the deadlines.

    If you want your file seen by the second board you will need to have your transcripts, test scores, interview, and PFT submitted. If you don't get those in by 2 January, you will need to get everything in by before the deadline for the third board. Contacting your fist choice schools is not one of the requirements for the process, although it is a good idea to contact them ASAP.

    Where did you get the 31 December date from??

    I assumed the interview was through the school of choice, because on the application status system website it said "You have been selected for an interview. Please contact the Professor of Military Science at the school of your choice." But then again I guess I could have misread that, seeing as I somehow misread january 2nd as december 31st...hahaha. I'm trying to figure out how i managed that, but no luck yet. Thanks for correcting me.

    Do you think there'd be any chance of me getting an interview before the january 2nd deadline?

    It just occurred to me that "school of your choice" could mean "school closest to you", not "number 1 school choice". My bad. That's probably something I should have figured out/thought of/planned out before the holidays, when chances are the interviewers are home...

    this info might help you a little

    You are definitely cutting it close with the second board. You could try calling the Battalion closest to you, or resign yourself to getting your file ready for the third board. Most Battalions are probably working day on/day off or half days, but you might get lucky

    Good luck

    I can't tell you how much I appreciate this information. What I don't understand is how it says I should have received a letter giving me instructions for setting up an interview; as far as I know I never received that letter, and the only reason I found out about the interview at all was what I saw on the online application status system, which I copied and pasted in my earlier post. My fingers are crossed, and hopefully this will all work out.

    Double check that the correct mailing address for you is in your application. Typos happen.

    when did you finish your application? You should probably contact your #1 school and ask if they can check your status for you. You should also be able to go back and check your status online. If you only finished your application recently, you'll need to be a little patient. With the holidays and the ramping up of the applications that usually happens right before the deadlines things probably aren't moving as fast as you would hope.
