I spoke with my National Guard recruiter while feeling out my other options in the event I am not accepted to West Point. In essence, after reviewing my qualifications, the officer in charge of the Minuteman Scholarship program is willing to wave the prior enlistment requirement for me if I get all my ducks in a row by the deadline (Friday) and get it on paper that I am a 09R (officer in training). They told me that in all likelihood I would receive the 4 year scholarship. This is excellent because this provides a window into the ROTC program that was previously closed and it gives me additional funding and a non-deployable status so I can finish school before potentially being activated and going to fight. Here's the kicker: no one is (understandably) willing to get the ball rolling on paperwork, AFPT, MEPS, etc--all of which are necessary for the scholarship--until I commit to the NG route. I am unwilling to commit until I get a more definitive answer or grasp of what my current standing is with West Point. I emailed my RC and called the office, but he is out and will not be back until tomorrow and I need to take action ASAP. The FFRs have no insight into the NWL so no dice there. Who else can I try to get ahold of?
