Is waiver always requested for scholarship winners? If so, when?

    Situation : Just received 3 year AROTC scholarship. Medically DQ'd. Awaiting waiver from USMA.

    It is my understanding that ROTC will automatically request waiver. Will they do this immediately?or wait? Because, technically he doesn't need in until his Sophomore year. But who can wait that long to find out if they are paying one years tuition or four!!

    Same thing happened last year. Within 24 hours of my DS being notified of winning an AROTC scholarship, his DoDMERB portal showed that AROTC had initiated a waiver review. AROTC is on the ball with this! Took about 6 weeks to hear back from Cadet Command that the waiver had been approved. Was a happy day.

    My DS was also a Service Academy applicant so his DoDMERB was done in July.

    Same here. DS was already a USMA and USNA applicant. He hasn't gotten ROTC packet yet either.
