    If you get on the waitlist for a diifernt school than the one you were awarded the scholarship for, do you lose your position at that school or do you keep your spot while waiting to see if you get in at the waitlisted school?

    Thank you!

    It depends on the school and the unit. If the waitlist unit is not full and the Navy desires to fill the unit, it is not a problem. The Ivys are a good example. If your scholarship is to an in state school and you trying to get into a popular private (ER), not likely.

    Thanks, Oldsalt. DS received 4 yr scholarship to Univ of Michigan (OOS), waitlist schools (backups, really) would be Purdue and RPI.

    Dial the gate: I was thinking about your question and wanted to check my son's paperwork from a few years ago. There is a packet on requesting a school change and within it I found the following:

    "Requesting a place on a wait list does not remove you from the school at which you were originally placed. If for any reason you cannot be moved from one of the wait lists, your scholarship will remain at your assigned school."

    Thank you so much!
    DS has an email to his recruiter but he isn't always reliable with answering.
    It makes sense, doesn't it, that they would keep the original school until placed somewhere else?
    I appreciate you digging out the info!
