    So I became a member of the Army website and I started to fill out preliminary data for the ROTC scholarship process, but I'm only a rising junior. This was a couple weeks back. Now I've received a letter stating how to start the process, take the PMS interview, and take the PFT. :eek:

    However, I'm not eligible to actually apply to any college and do this ROTC process. So my question is, what do I do? Should I contact the Department of the Army Headquarters and tell them that I'm sorry for wasting their time, or what? Any help would be GLADLY accepted.

    *Will this look bad for future scholarship opportunities?

    You jumped the gun a bit.

    You can't start your application process until the Spring of your high school junior year. Once the application process is complete for the current applicants and the scholarships for this year are awarded, the application process will open again for your year. Be Patient.

    Cadet Command is still in the process of accepting applications for applicants that would be starting College the Fall of 2013, you won't be starting until the Fall of 2014.

    You need to contact Cadet Command and explain that you are currently a junior in high school and filled out the application way too early. They will need to remove your name from the system so that you can apply during the correct time. If you don't do this your name will still be in the system when your are eligible to apply and that could open a whole different can of worms.

    You really need to read all the information regarding applications and make sure you do things at the appropiate times and not too early, that can cause just as many problems as being too late.

    By signing up on the website and online application you have been registered as an applicant. It is standard that they will send you the information you received once you have registered. The information they sent is to give you the steps you must follow during the application process. The information you received is not meant to be "How to Start" but "How to continue" once your registered.

    If you are able to remove your name from this years application process, you will receive the same information when you register again at the proper time.

    Make sure you get your name removed from this years application process, if it lingers in the system you could find there will be difficulties registering again.
