    The due date for my scholarship acceptance is March 8th. However I am not 100 percent sure on where to accept it and whether or not to convert it to a type 2 yet because I am awaiting financial information. Does anyone know if I can accept it to one place now as a type 7 just to accept the scholarship and convert it later? Or is it all in to that one school by March 8th?

    Are you talking about an AFROTC scholarship? Because from what I understand, AFROTC scholarships do not need to be accepted until May 31st (I received a Type 7 as well).

    I am just passing on information we were told, you can accept for a college ( 1 st choice ) and you can transfer the scholarship to another if change your mind

    You MAY be able to transfer to another. They will do their best but there are never guarantees in life. Just saying...

    I totally agree, I do believe that in life decisions need to be made sometimes sooner than one is ready or before all facts are in. We can only make the best decision given the set of circumstances at that time.

    That's how leaders live (pretty much). Incomplete information while an immediate decision is required. Sometimes you can let things ferment a bit, but not often.
