I am an incoming Freshman, and unfortunately was not selected for a National AROTC or AFROTC scholarship, but was given an interesting call today. I am still on the fence about which branch I will be choosing to walk on for. The AROTC ROO of my choice school called and said that he will be putting my name in for a 3 year scholarship with cadet command if I choose to start with them in the fall, and assuming they get the funding, I will be given one. I thanked him and said that I will need to discuss the matter with my parents, and think it over a bit (which is true, as I haven’t decided on AF or Army yet). My question is, does anyone have experience with this? The reason I ask is because a different ROO lied to me earlier this year saying he knew I was being given a national scholarship in an attempt to get me to commit to his school. Is this just a recruiter trick? If not, is there a high likelihood of me getting a scholarship?
