    Okay so im just gonna type this out and if I drag on I am sorry. I live in NC and was awarded a 4 year scholarship to a school i didnt get into and a 3 year to a school I did get into. I accepted the 3 year, both were in state for NC. I am looking to transfer my scholarship to another school inside NC. what is the first thing I need to do. i already emailed the ROO's at the two schools I am considering transferring it to. I am a "veteran" when it comes to asking these questions haha, so any help or repeated advice that I missed in any previous post I had would be greatly appreciated and I really do appreciate all of the time u guys spend helping me out. Thanks again!

    That is pretty much what they said. I would of done it earlier, but I was under the impression I had to wait. Can you request multiple schools to transfer it to and they like let you know what ones it would work. Like i have 2 in state that are viable options, but I would love to transfer Out of State if possible but I know that is harder. Also if I request schools should I order my preference, or like I said will they let me know what ones I could transfer to before making anything final? Thanks for your help

    You need to decide where you want to attend school and become an Army Officer. You are no longer in the shopping mode. If you have an acceptance letter contact the ROO at that school. Then send an email or letter requesting to tranfer the scholarship to the school you have been accepted to, along with your letter of acceptance. Send it to your scholarship processor. If you aren't sure who to send it to, ask the ROO. You should contact the ROO because the Battalion is probably going to have a say whether they want you or not. I know when I worked a transfer this year I let Brigade know what the applicant wanted to do, we let Brigade know we wanted the applicant and as soon as Cadet Command received the request and asked Brigade what they wanted to do we had already let them know we were good with it.
    At this rate you are going to wait yourself out of a scholarship. Make a decision and request the transfer.

    Thank you -- my son got his offer today and it was not to his first choice school so he plans to request a transfer (he's hoping since he already has a scholarship to the OOS first choice that reduces the delta between his in-state offer and OOS by about 75% that it might be possible.) I was reviewing your blog -- do you know if the contacts are still the same?

    Also does anyone have any thoughts as to whether the overall selectiveness of the school is taken into consideration? One of the reasons that my son prefers the OOS is that it matches his academic qualifications more closely and has less of a reputation as a party school.
