    Hello everyone! Im an applicant for the class of 2019. During the Candidate Questionnaire, it asked if I wanted to apply for the ROTC scholarship. I clicked yes. however, I have not received any emails, continuations, or forms of any sort stating that I have applied for it. Did my candidate questionnaire automatically count as an application? or am I missing something? Thank you in advance!

    It is possible that you could receive a scholarship offer from a battalion based on your WP application without completing the AROTC application process.

    Not really as the ROTC Bn local scholarships are generally if you have some involvement with that Bn. Usually they give them to a current ROTC cadet based on their performance.

    If you compete for both WP and ROTC, and that Bn knows you aren't getting either one, they may offer you one based on their other projected inbounds, but the reference document that are basing their decision on is your ROTC app.

    Go ahead and plan on applying to ROTC. That application usually opens in February with the first selection round in October. You'll have to interview with a Bn PMS as part of your application. That is a good way to make an impression and help make a determination if ROTC is your Plan A or Plan B.

    No. Be prepared to spend almost as much time on your AROTC scholarship as you will on your USMA application. Both have similar parts to complete, but are different in other ways (eg CFA for USMA, PFA for AROTC).
