I heard tell that West Point will offer 3 year ROTC scholarships to the QNS kids like myself? Have those already been given out?
Are you able to be a contracted cadet your freshman year with a 3 year ROTC scholarship? Or do you have to wait until the scholarship kicks in to contract?Yes, my DS was offered this after he was QNS his first year. I'm not sure how many are offered. My son enrolled in the ROTC program (which was his plan B), but didn't use the scholarship because it began after the first year...and he reapplied and was selected.
If you have a 3 year AD AROTC scholarship, before you contract, you must pass DoDMERB (if didn't already pass through the SA process), plus you must pass the APFT. If you are a 3 year, you MIGHT be offered an additional 1/2 year if you do well during the fresman fall semester. Again, this depends on the availability of additional AROTC campus based scholarship funds, plus the cadet's performance. This happened to my DS two years ago.Are you able to be a contracted cadet your freshman year with a 3 year ROTC scholarship? Or do you have to wait until the scholarship kicks in to contract?
^ THIS! A thousand times, this.You just need to show up, make good grades, do well in PT and be an active part of the unit. Things will work out as long as you do your part.
This is SO logical...I'm surprised the Army does it and disappointed that the Air Force doesn't. My son applied to AFA, USMA and both ROTC programs. I was surprised that there was SO many different deadlines and hoops to jump through for all- and that they weren't more uniform- especially within the same service. He is 3Q for West Point and waiting, but that window is mostly closed and he has already received a 3 year AROTC scholarship based on the ROTC application. Got a TWE from AFA and nothing from AFROTC.West Point gives the list of QNS candidates to Cadet Command. The thought being that since West Point has determined that they qualified for West Point, they are therefore qualified for an AROTC scholarship.
Where did the denial update appear? Application overview?My DS got a 3 year AD Scholarship ROTC back in February or later. He was hoping for West Point then in March he was notified that they upped his 3 year to a full 4 year stateing he was in the top 1000 applicates . On April 14 he received an online TWE from West Point.
But he is thrilled with his plan B. Not sure if West Point had any thing to do with him getting the extra year.
