Call me confused. Nephew is awarded NROTC scholarship in December. Placed at first choice which at the time was in state public U. He spoke with NROTC who led him to believe that if he was unsure, he could be wait listed at another school. In late December he was wait listed at OUT of state public u. He was told that since wait listed early, there should be good chance of opening. There was never a mention of not being able to go from in state to out of state. Now he is being told that he may not transfer from in state to out of state. He is told that an in state student would get preference over him, even if they have only been wait listed a week and he has been wait listed for 4 months. He has been wait listed for 4 months and he is told this now? Why was this not told when he was first wait listed? So even though the scholarship states $180,000 it is not the real value, and it looks like nephew's is worth $100,000. He is happy to have the scholarship, but wishes he had known the real value. This seems deceptive. So beware! Really hate this for him as he turned down other scholarships and other schools thinking he could use the scholarship at out of State school if they had an opening. This out of state school offered more scholarships, honors program, etc. which would cover room and board. They offered more than in state U. But it is a no go to transfer to out of state school from in state u.
