Hello. This is a long story and I can go into it publicly or privately if anyone wants the specifications but in general, for military purposes,can an AROTC Scholarship be deferred acceptance for one year. This is NOT for a gap year. To explain, I'd be going to OSUT for 19D Cav Scout following my high school graduation next summer. I will be applying to USMA and VMI, also for the AROTC Scholarship. However dates will conflict with VMI to where I'd be going a year late to there as you can't miss the first few weeks. If I win an AROTC Scholarship, and I end up going to VMI for the class of 22' rather than 21', can I work it out to get the scholarship starting a year delayed since the reason is I'll be doing BCT and AIT and can't go, or would I lose the scholarship completely? Thanks very much for your time and response, have a nice day!
