GM, My DS has received 4 year scholarship offers from AROTC and AFROTC. The university will cover room and board, too for all 4 years (taxable, and yet still great). But he is an aviation student, so there additionally are about 50k in flight fees remaining since he is already a private pilot. the university will let him apply most of the merit scholarships he's been given toward flight costs, but only up to the total cost of attendance from the financial aid letter. Does anyone have experience in asking the university to raise that total cost attendance number, to include flight fees? Ohio State for example noted you can appeal and they will raise it. So far about half of the schools have included the flight fees in this total cost number without being asked. Has anyone been successful in appealing / asking for that number to be increased in order to keep more of the merit scholarships (in addition to the awesome tuition, books, fees, room, board already covered) through ROTC? Please share any guidance/ experiences you may have had. Typically this degree and flight licenses cost about 320k when all is said and done. If he can end up getting nearly all of this covered AND have the opportunity to serve, it will be absolutely incredible. Thanks, Hermie Sr.
