I joined this forum eight years ago, when my then 10 year old boy expressed an interest in West Point. About three years ago, we learned of the Senior Military Colleges and he set his sights on The University of North Georgia and the National Army ROTC Scholarship. In my further research, I realized he would be disqualified for absence of one or both testicles, headaches requiring medication, and asthma. I asked Jcleppe if DS should give up, to which he wisely replied, "he would never know unless he tried," or something similar. Last June, my son applied for the scholarship. In filling out the application, a big box came up that said "you are disqualified from the ROTC scholarship because you have too many college credits," something else I was prepared for, as I had seen it on this forum. This box also said, "you may continue on with the application," so he pressed on. November 19, 2016, we learned he had won a four year scholarship on the first board! He then went through the Dodmerb process, and quess what? He was disqualified for two of those three issues; the asthma we cleared up without a disqualification. We jumped through all the hoops and submitted everything, then waited three and a half agonizing months for the medical waiver, which came on my birthday! I joined the amazing North Georgia Cadet Parents page a couple years ago, after we toured the campus and ds attended the National Leadership Challenge Weekend at UNG. The last two summers, I looked at pictures and videos of FROG week, for brand new cadets, on the internet, hoping someday that would be my son. This Friday, we leave for Dahlonega Georgia! My son's dreams have all come true. My point in all of this is, don't give up. Don't presume something isn't possible, until those in charge tell you it isn't possible, then find another way, or choose a new path. This forum has been invaluable in our process, as I was able to guide my son with all the information learned here. I want to thank everyone here, especially Jcleppe and Clarkson. You are all awesome!
