    I have an account on the GoArmy.com website, but it will not let me use that username and password for the scholarship application.

    Please Help!

    Try it with your email (instead of username) and password. My son had the same issue.

    You need to start the application in the beginning of your senior year. I had the same "Jump the Gun" attitude when I was a junior, and I got a nice letter in the mail saying that I needed to wait until I was a senior. But, really, you need to do it at the first opportunity available you senior year. It's a yearlong process with Medical Exams, PT Test, etc etc. Oh, and try to get it in by November. That'll help you get in on the first boards. I received a Scholarship the beginning of Dec because I finished early.

    John3337 is a little off on his dates.

    The first AROTC Board was and is in October. You would need your application to be completed by early October to be seen by the first board.

    I personally would not wait until the beginning of your senior year. Start the application toward the end of your junior year, start the conversation with your school advisor. This will give you time to get your transcripts ready over the beginning of summer before your advisor starts their break. It's not a bad idea to wait until you start your senior year to submit the final information so you can include any leadership positions you might get when school starts. Work out over the summer to get in the best shape you can so you do your best on the PFT.

    Just make sure you have everything ready to submit by the end of September so you can make the first board. There are sometimes snafu's and issues submitting the application so don't wait until the last minute. You can get a lot of the busy work such as the transcripts and Advisors info done early (End of Junior Year).

    Don't forget that you can update your application until it is seen by the first board, after that it is closed to new info other then SAT or ACT score revisions.

    Getting the initial application sent in allows you to have more time to schedule your interview, it is always good if you can have your interview with your #1 choice school.

    Good Luck.
