My DS is a MS2 Army ROTC cadet. He was on a 3- year scholarship but injured his shoulder as an MS1 and it required surgery. He had a anterior a open Bankart repair done in August and a posterior pending in December. He is on limited duty and unable to perform anything other than light PT. He spoke to his CO this summer and was told he would need a waiver and that he should apply for it when he got to school in the Fall. There was no mention of scholarship and his tuition statement even showed credit from the Army at the start of the semester. When he started classes he was told he was not qualified and since he was not under contract he does not meet the physical standards and won't be awarded a scholarship but that he could apply for a waiver and needed a statement from his surgeon stating his chance of full recovery (he will have no limitations when healed). We complied and the word is the waiver is in process. My question is this. It is getting near the bewitching hour for payment for the 1st semester. Does anyone know this process and what the timelines are and likelihood for receiving a waiver and scholarship for the year? We have some tough decisions to make if it is a two year award due to this injury. He is in a great business school and 5 for 2 may not make financial sense in the end. I am trying not to be the helicopter parent but I have some big commas and zeroes to face up to and would like to get some gauge as to possibilities.
