Has anyone received a scholarship from the November Review Board for AROTC? Are they going to meet in December?

Flyersboy114 - it is one mile for the presidential.
The APFT i- that you take as a soldier - is a two mile run.

I'm not sure about a December Board but the time frame for the October Board was about a 5 week turn around give or take a week. Keep checking your AROTC Go Army status and your DoDMERB status for info pages. The message will change to "You have been Offered a Four Year Scholarship" to your Schools (fill in your choices) and a letter about a week later. I've noticed that we received a letter from one of my sons chosen schools PMS congratulating him for winning the scholarship about a week earlier than the official announcement.

My app was reviewed at the November board (for the first time) and just today my online status changed to say I had the scholarship.

Did your POC send you an email this time about your application going up for review for a Nov. board? I never got one but I did get one in October but was not awarded a scholarship. My status still shows I have not been awarded a scholarship but I was wondering if my application even went up for review. Thanks in advance

We got an email Nov 17th saying that son's file was forwarded to the next board for review. Website status has not changed (please shedule interview. . . ), but we did get a phone message from the LTC at Fresno State regarding AROTC. . . . answering machine cut him off before we heard what he had to say. Dang answering machines! Hopefully hear something tomorrow. . .

Oh okay, so maybe I still got a shot haha. But, if my file was sent to the Oct. board wouldn't make sense that it would be sent to the Nov. board? I never got an email for the Nov. board though...

AROTC scholarships are awarded through the spring. If you are a qualified candidate academically and are the scholar/leader/athlete model the Army is looking for then you have an excellent shot.

I was told that once your file is submitted to the board it remains with them for future meetings for consideration, so they are looking at new submissions as well as the others who were not awarded a scholarship from prior sessions.

Oh okay, makes sense. That's what I thought would probably happen. Does anybody know when the Nov. results will be posted online?

If AROTC boards are like AFROTC boards it is about 4-6 weeks for the results to be released. Look around Xmas break.

November Board

We understand the Nov board met the week before Thanksgiving and results were announced the first week of December. First came the phone call from an LTC at on of the schools of choice, then the letter arrived in the mail, then the website was updated announcing he recv'd the scholarship. Now my son gets to wait for the waiver from Dodmerb.
:rolleyes: good luck and hopefully you will hear soon.
