I am trying to understand how the AROTC scholarship works. From reading here it seems that the recipient doesn't necessarily get to decide which school they can use it at, is that correct? And how does that work? My son is applying for the AROTC Scholarship and has 3-4 schools he is interested in. He has been accepted to one already and should hear from 2 of the others shortly. I haven't done the application with him, he has done it on his own, so I am not sure how it works. Does he list in order of preference and cross his fingers he can go to his first choice? Or do they say you received this scholarship but only for one certain school?
