    Several months ago I was on the Army ROTC website and thought I saw that the service commitment for a 3yr scholarship was less than that of a 4yr scholarship.

    Perhaps I misread?

    Today, I was back on the website and it states that the commitment is the same; 4yrs active and four IRR for ALL who receive a scholarship, even a 2yr scholarship requires a full service commitment. link

    If someone could verify this I'd really appreciate it. thanks

    As I recall a non-scholarship AROTC cadet in Advanced Standing commissions as an officer with a 3 year AD obligation rather than 4. However, I don't know where I read that, and it does not seem to be supported by the Non-Scholarship Cadet contract, which is here: http://www.rotc.pitt.edu/forms/da597.pdf Note there is no specification for AD obligation... weird.

    **edit** here is the reference to 3 years AD commitment for a non-scholarship Advanced Standing contracted cadet: http://www.goarmy.com/rotc/service-commitment.html

    Per this ROTC Scholarship Contract, the AD commitment is 4 years regardless of the length of the scholarship (4, 3, or 2 yrs.). http://www.missouristate.edu/assets/milcsi/DA597_3_Scholarship_Cadet_Contract.pdf
