    from my kid's current top choice ($ private school) and offered what amounts to half-off of the total but only for the first year, anticipating that they receive a 3-year AROTC scholarship from the final board.

    The ROO also seemed optimistic about transferring a 3-year if awarded to a different school, but the other schools my kid listed are mostly public, not private, so would the price difference matter?

    No the price difference doesn't matter. In MAR/APR you can request to transfer the scholarship. I do not know the transfer acceptance rates, but every transfer request into or out of my program has been approved.

    MAR - APR timeframe. Depends on how quick the results get published. This past board, they were published in less than a week.
