    Does anyone know whether it is still the case that you become ineligible for the GI Bill if you accept an ROTC scholarship?

    Thanks. Looks like ROTC scholarship folks are forever barred, but SA grads get to participate so long as they serve 90 days past their 5-year obligation. Is that your take as well?

    GI Bill and ROTC

    I took it to mean not eligible for the GI Bill unless you add 3 years of service. The first 4 years(minimum) is repayment for ROTC..then do 3 more to be GI Bill eligible.

    Not an answer, but there is currently an ADSO for grad school. What that means is that you agree to serve an additional three years of obligation in return for guaranteed free grad school at around the 4 year mark. Don't know all the details, because we haven't had anyone opt for this option, but if you are looking to pay for grad school this is probably about the same deal as getting GI Bill bennies...Keep in mind too that we are talking 4 to 7 years from now, so who knows what options will be available. One thing about the Army ROTC contract is that there aren't a lot of future promises other than toe opportunity to serve as an Officer.
