    Hello everyone,

    I'm an applicant for the 4 year AROTC Scholarship, have an interview question. Is it a set rule everything must be uploaded and have to have interviewee status to interview with PMS? I'm trying to make it for the first board, the problem is, my school is having problems getting me an official transcript with all information correct. For whatever reason, all transcripts get messed up and don't contain all the right information because of summer school, new and leaving students, etc. I was provided with my exact weighted and unweighted GPA and class rank, yet my updated SAT scores aren't on the transcript, their are "projected" GPAs that are messed up from the computer system that are on there, and class rank isn't on there at the current moment. May be several weeks before they can give me one (and I had originally asked early summer so not from procrastination). I'm a tad nervous because will be pushing the timeline. I contacted the school I want to interview but haven't heard back yet. If I have to wait, depending on how long it takes my school, I may not be able to do the PMS interview on time, depending on their schedule as well, in time for the first board. Kind of nervous about all this so if anyone has any advice or knows what to do please let me know. Also, in case anyone needed to know, attempting to do the interview at VMI which is my #1 and the only school on my list that I deeply want to attend.

    Breathe. You have time. They have probably not gotten back to you because they are dealing with getting cadets on campus and school started. Even if you interview the end of September you will be fine, I promise they will work with you. They literally upload it the same day ro Cadet Command, it is not a long process especially if it is close tot he deadline. A few weeks for the school to update your transcript is okay, and you can upload that as well to the portal same day. Just get everything done you can ("control the controllables"), the other stuff will work itself out. Worst case scenario you can still visit your number 1 school on your timeline and do your interview at a local school if needed. My daughter was in the situation when we visited one of her top schools out of state the PMS was not available, she did her interview at another school close to home and it worked out fine. It will be okay.
