Does anybody know how "binding" it is if you accept the AROTC scholarship? Is it like NROTC, where you can accept it but then if it turns out you want to do AFROTC or NROTC (or go to one of the MA's), you can back out? And what if you've already "accepted" an NROTC scholarship, can you also "accept" an AROTC scholarship? Or do you have to back out of the NROTC scholarship acceptance first? I ask because my DS was recently awarded a 4-year AROTC scholarship, but he was also awarded a 4-year NROTC scholarship as well as a Type 7 AFROTC scholarship. He already accepted the NROTC scholarship (he got it last October, so the deadline for accepting it was awhile ago); AFROTC is giving until May 31st to accept or not. He is pretty sure he wants to use the AROTC scholarship, since the school he really really wants to go to does not take NROTC, and his AFROTC scholarship would only be good for three years at that school. All this said, he is still mulling everything over. So I'm just wondering if he has to make up his mind about everything by the March 10th acceptance deadline in his AROTC scholarship award letter. Any insight anyone has would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
