    Insightful Video Explaining SMCs, MJCs, & ROTC

    Can you send the URL for this? I would like to share with my daughter who will be attending VMI on a full AROTC scholarship. Thank you sharing. I believe the quote that went " you have to experience it to understand how great it is" sums this up.

    VMI financial aid

    I confirmed what Falcon A stated with regard to VMI. I asked the question because other colleges that my DD has been accepted to also offered her academic scholarships that could be used for room and board even if she was on a full tuition scholarship from ROTC.

    AROTC- scholarship what if's

    I'm not seeing anything that firmly states that if your not admitted to your first choice school on your award letter, you can simply move the scholarship to another school, still one of three that you were awarded the scholarship in the winner letter.

    Early Action vs Regular decision

    Rolling a die 3 times does not give you a 50% chance of rolling a specific number. The probability of rolling any number stays 1/6 no matter how many times you roll the dice. Please retake probability and statistics.

    Went from Qualified to Remedial Requested for DoDMERB

    Best to call your assigned contact at DODMERB, that person can tell you what the actual remedial action if any is required on your part. You will get a letter in the mail at some point but calling will give you a head start.
