    contracted freshman flunked out

    I so appreciate the information, advice, and support you all have provided in this post. I have read every reply with interest and gratitude, and gotten something useful from each one. As you can imagine, things are still up in the air, but I know there are many options for him to choose from...

    I hadn’t had a chance to tell him about it. Now I have told him and and he’s going to call back. But other than that, I feel like there must be more to the process to ensure he’s not burning any bridges.

    Well, he talked to the enrollment officer at his cadre and was told all he has to do is not come back and that’s it. That doesn’t seem right to me? Considering he’s contracted and they’ve already paid for a year. No paperwork? No mention of the DD785?

    contracted freshman flunked out

    Thank you, Tbpxece. I appreciate the reality check. His main goal is to serve, and enlisting may be the way to go at this time. As I said, he's done well in ROTC and his cadre seems to like him, so hopefully the DD785 won't be a problem.

    contracted freshman flunked out

    Thank you, clarksonarmy. That's the information I was looking for, not that I like it. He's made the decision to withdraw because it's very unlikely that he could get off of academic probation in just one semester, or maybe even 2 (he'd have to take a full load and get all As and Bs which...

    Yes, his scholarship would be on probation (they wouldn’t pay for the semester) to see if he could get his GPA up. He's been taking some online summer courses so they were waiting to see how those went, but he has not done well there, either.

    contracted freshman flunked out

    Thank you. I hope this is a learning and strengthening situation for him. He doesn't seem to have an answer for what is going wrong, and now he's all in his own head and says he chokes on his finals. I think going back is not really an option because his GPA is so low he likely wouldn't be...

    contracted freshman flunked out

    I know our story isn't unique, but it's a pretty emotional time at our house right now. Our "golden boy" who earned a 4 year AROTC national scholarship to an expensive school on the other side of the country has flunked/almost flunked out after his freshman year. As I understand it, if he...
