    I received a 4 year scholarship - should I notify my colleges that I applied to that I have the scholarship? Scholarship was for choice 1 and 3 but I like the idea of 2, 4 and 5 as well and I don't know which colleges I will be admitted to. I already notified number 1 but that is because i have kept in contact since my interview.

    Should I notify ROTC, or admissions or both. I live outside USA so I don't have the benefit of asking a knowledgable school counselor.

    You can notify your school. Most schools (excluding Ivy League) will accept you if they know you have a 4YR scholarship. The ROOs at the school you have been offered a scholarship to knows that you have an offer, and will in most cases alert the admissions department as well.

    If you are looking to transfer your scholarship to another school, make sure to contact the ROO at the school.

    It can never hurt to contact the ROO or PMS (preferably ROO at Clarkson) and let us know you got your offer and that you are/aren't going to accept it. I think most ROOs hate wondering whether you are going to come to our school and we are also willing to help you with the transfer process and help provide you with the information you need to make your decision if you haven't decided yet. Contact us for sure and contact the school.
