    He already passed it in September. So he has to continue to pass it every time or he could possibly be in "remedial pt"? Thank you.

    APFT more than once??

    DS passed his APFT on the first go round back in September and was officially contracted. They administered the test again today and he didn't pass the sit up portion.. Does this have any bearing on anything? While I understand he needs to be in shape and perform at top level all time, will...

    Army ROTC Stipend pay dates

    My DS got his and it was a strange amount too. He told me it added up; books, all of September and half of October. I was under the impression it was only paid once a month though.

    APFT Dates

    Does anyone know if the dates for the APFT are the same nationwide or does each school do their own? I know it's within a couple of weeks of school starting. Thank you.

    AROTC Interview Question

    DS did his interview with the ROO from his #1 school, which is also 30 minutes from home. I think knowing him personally really helped later on down the road. His scholarship was upgraded from 3 to 4 years based on this ROO's recommendation. Not sure if that would have happened if he...

    ROTC Roommate

    Thanks everyone!! I think he's leaning towards another nursing major or just luck of the draw! He wants to make sure he has the opportunity to make friends with lots of different "groups".

    DS was awarded a 3 year on the second board and upgraded to a 4 year on the last board. His ROO told us he is allowed to upgrade 2 recipients per year and our DS was one.

    ROTC Roommate

    My DS was awarded a 4 year Army ROTC scholarship to study nursing. We are all beyond excited.! He is weighing the options of rooming with someone in ROTC vs Nursing vs Anyone! Do you have any advice? Pros? Cons? I would think having someone in your room on your ROTC schedule would be...
