    Does a semester abroad count for OML points for AROTC? It is not through AROTC, but through the college. Since the boys are 4yr scholarship winners, AROTC is paying the tuition, if that makes a difference.

    I believe DS got OML points for a semester as a foreign exchange cadet. I think he also got points for various presentations he has given on the program. His language fluency increased exponentially which also resulted in more points, and when he returned to his US school he easily moved into a leadership position in that language's club: OML points for that too.

    I believe it counts toward the cultural portion of the OML I seem to recall my DS saying he maxed that portion between study abroad, CULP and foreign language study. As a side note I do not believe Project GO counts toward the OML.
