In the March board, I just found out that I was awarded an Army ROTC Scholarship. I am concerned about the deadlines though. I need to have a DODMERB physical and I have heard all the horror stories of the ridiculous things they will disqualify you and the difficulties incurred while trying to appeal these decisions. I don't want to accept my Army ROTC Scholarship, to only find out that I fail the DODMERB physical (don't get me wrong, there's nothing in my record that would concern me, but with the DODMERB you never know) and then be left footing the bill to a school that I can't afford, meanwhile I had another academic full scholarship to another school that I would have taken if I wasn't awarded an ROTC Scholarship. Is this a potential problem I could run into? How long is the typical waiting time for a physical appointment and could that cause problems with scholarship acceptance deadlines? Essentially, will I know if I have passed or failed the physical by the time I need to accept or decline the scholarship?
