I haven't been on the forum in quite awhile but thought I would share an update about where we ended up. My DD applied for the ROTC scholarship last year and went through two boards. She was not selected and was pretty devastated. She started to move on to plan B and C even though that was not her dream. I continued to investigate options for her and found out about the benefits through the Army reserve. She ended up joining the reserves and applied for the Minuteman Scholarship and received this scholarship. She went to Basic Training over the summer and now is living her dream, playing NCAA soccer and pursuing her college studies while participating in the ROTC. It was quite ironic that she was selected as a Soldier Leader of the Cycle while at basic training out of over 1000 soldiers while she wasn't selected for the ROTC scholarship. Not everything shows up on paper about what you can do and who you are. Celebrating her graduation from Basic Training at Fort Jackson was one of my proudest moment as a parent. I just wanted to give some hope and encouragement that there are many paths to pursue your dreams so just keep on no matter what obstacles may block your way.
