Dropping the ROTC

This isn't really that important, but I was getting rather curious about something. I was recently given an ROTC scholarship to a respective school, but I dropped it today by sending the PMS a warm letter explaining my change of plans. He sent me an email that said "I am VERY confident that you will be getting into this university... *hint* *hint*"

By dropping the scholarship, would this affect my admission into the school? In other words, does the ROTC scholarship make a great difference in one's admission?
I have never heard of a school accepting or rejecting an applicant based on a scholarship. Most ROTC scholarship recepiants I know are accepted into their school of choice long before they ever even hear about the scholarship yet alone recieve it. I would be VERY surprised if it mattered. My guess is that the PMS was afriad you were dropping the scholarship because you had lost confedence that you would get into the school.
