Without getting into too much detail, this is what happened: I experimented with MJ several years ago, and admitted to it on the DoDMERB, it wasn't a big deal and I am now confident that I could easily get a waiver for it if needed. Here is where I really screwed up: while filling out a ROTC scholarship application, I denied any prior drug use. I was selected for and accepted the scholarship, and now there is obviously conflicting information surrounding my prior drug use. The way I see it I have two main options: A) Admit to using MJ on all forms (and when asked) in the future, but not volunteer this information and hope that the ROTC application in question is lost in the bureaucracy or overlooked. B) Come forwards and explain my mistake in detail to an officer at the ROTC program. There are certain circumstances surrounding why I denied it on the application that may help my case. How should I best approach this? I am not going to lie or deny anything again when I do any future paperwork/interviews, and I am fully prepared to face the consequences of my actions. Obviously I would prefer to keep the scholarship and/or be able to stay in ROTC, but I understand that I may lose the scholarship and/or be kicked out of ROTC for falsifying a document. I am not looking for pity, only advice. I now realize the full implications of lying, and I never wished to cover anything up.
