So excited for my son today. We just found out that he has been awarded the 4 year AROTC scholarship. I am a retired army 1SG. Being a soldier is a great thing. He was a board winner from 2nd board. He was boarded on the 1st board but was not a "winner." He did not dwell on the fact he was not selected on the first board and just went about his normal rotuine of school, sports and community involvement. He now has 4 year AROTC offers to Western Kentucky University, East Tennessee State University and Austin Peay State University. All his top choices. He also has already applied and been accepted at all 3 school. Now he has to make a decision. We plan to visit each school, take a tour and speak with the ROTC programs. Then make the decision. Each of these schools also help with room & aboard. All are great schools. We will eagerly await the "official" offer in the mail. So congrats to all the individuals whom were selected today,. You should be thankful and proud. To others whom are boarded, just hang in there. Good luck to all you future soldiers.
Congratulations to your son and thank you for your service as well.
Your son sounds like he has all his ducks in a row, great job.
I remember this time with both my sons, each time they had a pile of information on the dining room table from each school, both had 5 schools to choose from (They offered more schools in the past) Those piles took up the whole table for nearly the entire 30 days until they finally made their decisions. We didn't mind, felt really proud every time we walked by that messy table.
