I received a call last night from someone who I assume was a liaison officer for West Point. He was essentially calling me to give me advice, as he saw I was a qualified candidate who hasn't received an offer yet. However, one interesting thing he said, which I wasn't aware of, was that because I have been deemed a qualified or "admissible" candidate, I would automatically receive a federal ROTC scholarship if I were to be rejected by West Point. Additionally, he said that I can take the it to whatever school I want (as long as they have an ROTC program), and that it would be a 3 or 4 year scholarship. Can anyone comment on the validity of this or expand on it? Is it a full scholarship, what does a 3-year scholarship entail (considering it isn't possible to complete an engineering major in 3 years), does it matter how expensive the school I'm taking it to is, etc.? Hopefully I'll be appointed to West Point and I won't need it, but this is an interesting backup plan I wasn't aware of (I was only aware of the ROTC scholarships directly tied to the other universities I've applied to). Any clarification helps, thanks.
