    AROTC paperwork: SAT score sheet?

    On the college board website you can download the SAT score sheet. Save it as a document and upload it to the scholarship app. Thankfully AROTC accepts score sheets that way and you dont have to pay to have the testing company send it directly. My DS did that with his SAT and ACT scores last...

    Remedial Requested

    No, after his exam his status went to remedial requested, after he went and had the requested test done, it took about another week and he was qualified. If you still havent gotten your remedial code/s, email you technician they may be able to give you info.

    When to send transcripts?

    AROTC application opened today (I believe). After the first section or two of the app which doesn't take long, there is a prompt to send a request to the guidance counselor.

    Remedial Requested

    It took about a week after my son's said "remedial requested" until we had the code for what they wanted. Often its records, in our case it was to go get an additional exam. If they want records, you would get them and send them.

    nervous mother here!

    When my DS went last Winter the doctor actually made the comment: "we used to have to do a urine test at these but they told us not to do it anymore" . Glad we didnt have to deal with the chance of false positives! He had abstained from exercise for a few days leading up to it just in case.

    What are my chances of getting a full ROTC scholarship?

    If you are looking for Army, first know that the 3 and 4 year national scholarships pay full tuition plus books and a monthly stipend. It does not include room and board but some schools ( especially private ones) will throw that in also to scholarship winners. Your resume looks good overall...
