My son received a 3 year AD scholarship (AROTC) last year out of high school. He is at his unit, and loving everything so far. They just found out today that there are cuts coming in the available contract slots (1500 nationwide?). My son has not yet contracted due to being on a 3yr AD scholarship. He is supposed to contract before the start of his Sophomore year. So, the question is: Assuming he meets standards (PT, grades, DODMERB), is his contract/scholarship guaranteed? Or can AROTC back out of the offer since he ins't contracted yet?
