I have a problem that I was hoping someone could help me with... I have an application in to West Point for the second go-round and have joined Army ROTC in college in the interim. Initially when I joined they had offered that I would be eligible for a 3.5 year Army ROTC scholarship, something that my ROTC battalion has funds allocated for right now. The problem is because I was forthcoming about my intentions to attend West Point, they won't award me any scholarship money. As of right now I'm a 3-year scholarship advanced designee, meaning if for whatever reason West Point denies me, I will have a back up option here with ROTC. They are concerned that if I were to get into West Point, the Army would suddenly charge me for the tuition they paid for this year, hence the hesitancy to upgrading me to a 3.5 year scholarship. I was under the impression that this was something fairly common and that West Point and the Army look favorably upon ROTC cadets transferring to the academy, especially since you are commissioning one way or the other. I understand that there could obviously be worse situations but I would deeply grateful if someone could find an answer for me.
