Hello all. I've been reading Exar Ganis' (??) posts about ROTC versus Service Academies and have a question myself. First off, my son recently received his nomination from our Senator; he interviews with our Rep. this Sat. We're thrilled and excited he's made it thus far and are very proud of him. USMA is his first and foremost choice. He passed his Dodmerb and his CFA. His grades and SATs/ACTs are right up there within the requirements. Things are looking strong. However, he did apply for and receive a full 4 yr. ROTC scholarship for a very good school in the mid-Atlantic region on an early action application. He was honest and forthright and told the major that USMA was his first choice. The major congratulated him on his hard work and drive to get into the SA and encouraged him to sign the offer letter stating he'd use the scholarship at the mid-Atlantic school anyway. (Thus Plan B). Perhaps this helps to answer Exar Ganis' question. My question is more of a request for confirmation of what I believe is true. My son signed the ROTC offer, but if he gets into USMA he can legally turn down the ROTC offer, correct? The major told us that they offered the scholarships on a quarterly basis and that another applicant would still have time to receive it offer if my son ended up turning it down. Thanks for all of the wonderful information you all provide.
