    SMP CDT Minuteman

    Thank you for the response! My recruiter and my PMS told me that it just means that there's a chance I will get it and not guaranteed. I am honestly truly confused, and would like to figure out my plan of action IOT pay for the rest of my college.

    Want to join ROTC as a Sophomore

    Great! I really appreciate the response. So when filling out the questionnaire - is it like the MEPS process where you would send up medical records first and based off of that a physical is provided? Or is it that you take the physical and bring medical records?
