    I earned a 3-year AROTC Scholarship on the last board to Ohio State, George Mason University, and Old Dominion University. I scanned and e-mailed my letter of intent to CC with George Mason University as my school of choice.

    I was wondering if they will be contacting me about my DoDMERB appointment, or do I need to contact someone myself for that? It's been about a week since I sent the e-mail, and I've yet to receive a response. I just want to make sure I'm going about this process correctly.

    Thank you!

    You do not need to initiate contact for DoDMERB yourself. Cadet Command will contact DoDMERB for you. You should receive your DoDMERB physical request within the next couple weeks. Go to the portal to see if it has been updated to say something like:

    Congrats you have accepted your scholarship to school XYZ

    Congrats on receiving your scholarship!!

    Mind posting your high school stats (GPA, SAT/ACT, extracurriculars) so we can future applicants can see?

    Okay thank you!

    I'll just C&P a copy of my EC's for anyone who would like to see! My ACT scores were my fault, but my standardized test taking skills are not the "cream of the crop" for sure. My EC's and community service are what I think boosted me though!

    GPA: 3.87
    ACT: 21
