If a student gets an Army ROTC scholarship and is given several school options to select from, must they select the school when they accept the scholarship? They only have about 30 days to accept the scholarship after being awarded it, correct? If this is the case, there can be some very difficult decision when many admissions decisions won't come in, potentially, until well after the 1st and 2nd scholarship boards. Obviously, students should only be listing schools on the scholarship application that believe they are likely to get into, but some with some of the highly selective colleges, it can be a real crap shoot if you'll get in, even if your stats/profile indicate you would be a good match. I've read previous threads about people accepting scholarships and then being denied admissions and then trying to scramble to get the scholarship transferred to a school where they were accepted. How often does this situation occur? I understand from a budget standpoint that you would be more likely to transfer a scholarship awarded to a high-cost private school to another, as well, but is this extremely difficult to do?
