    Anyone know if the Academy has a wait list? I've realized that with the timeline of all the appointments being given out now, I'm definitely not even close to being their first choice. I'm starting to realize that I probably won't be accepted, but even so, it would be an honor to even be...

    AROTC Acceptance or Denial Form

    I sent in my acceptance form to the cadet command e-mail address provided in the winner letter. Should I be expecting a reply confirming that they received it? I almost feel like it would be smart to mail it as well just to be safe.
