    My name was sent up for my battallion in hopes to recieve a scholarship. I was told I'm competing at the brigade level against other cadets. Can someone explain how scholarships are distributed among the brigade? This is all Army ROTC.

    Do you go to a cheap or an expensive school?

    PMS buddy of mine says brigade is pretty good about making efficient use of their monies. He gave the example of the brigade being able to give a scholarship to 4-5 cadets going to UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Charlotte, etc vs 1 cadet to Duke. Make sense to me. Not to say cadets at Duke don't have a chance, but costs are part of the calculus.

    Private School, certainly on the expensive side.

    Each brigade does things differently. Bottom line though is you name is on the OML and how the Brigade allocates spending their money is out of your control. Hopefully there is enough more new to get to your name and you receive an offer.

    Depends on the Brigade, and how the Brigades Battalions process the scholarship requests and how quickly Battalions can get those to Brigades and the Brigades get those to Cadet Command.

    If I tell you it takes three weeks, does that make you feel better?
