Now that it's (finally) almost time for DS to start on the application for the AROTC National Scholarship, I am puzzled over some conflicting information. The recruiting officer at one of the school's we visited said the first board is for those cream of the crop kids, with outstanding test scores, so DS should wait and apply by the second board. The idea being to keep taking the ACT, with time to get the scores to Cadet Command before the second board. I've see that posted here as well. On the other hand, I've also seen here that submitting by the first board gets the application seen one more time (obviously). But then some have said that any updates, like making captain for a fall sport, better test scores or other things added in the fall won't/can't be updated to the file, so best to wait for the second board. I've also seen where the file can be updated. What do you all think? I'm not sure what is the best plan with all the conflicting info I have seen. DS has an outstanding resume', just lacking in the ACT - 23 twice. Plans to study March2Success and other practice tests before the next test in the fall.
