I am applying for both the Rhodes and Marshall scholarships as a member of ROTC, and I wanted to check a few questions. I know that previous winners from ROTC have delayed commissioning for 2-3 years to attend school in England on their scholarships. My question is- what happens with respect to my branching etc? I am planning on ADSOing for post and branch (I know that's ironic as I am applying for these ultra-competitive scholarships, so be it). If I receive my branch of choice, and then get the scholarship, will I be branched into that afterwards? If not, would my ADSO contract be voided? Same question for ADSO for post. This could be a decade of obligation, so I'd like to know what happens! As for the scholarships, I am well-aware of how competitive they are. All that I can say, so as to avoid further describing myself, is that I am a very competitive applicant.
