My son is a sophomore and has just completed the process to apply for the sideload scholarship. I am brand-new here so forgive me if I am posting something that is old information. However, I have tried to search for information on the forums. He was told today that there are only 30 scholarship slots available nationwide, and 15 slots for advanced standing. Is it normally so few or is it having to do with military cutbacks? He did his freshman year in the Air Force ROTC and then decided his heart was not in that branch. So it is sink or swim now, at least as far as the ROTC goes. All of his stats are competitive from what I've seen posted elsewhere. 286 pft, 27 ACT etc. his captain ranked him first among his peers. He has so much of himself into this program. But 30 isn't much at all. He will not ask how long it might take until he finds out, but from what I've read it may be until late summer. Is this likely?
