It is my understanding that even if you were awarded a 4 year NROTC scholarship, technically that scholarship does not become activated until you pass your PRT and weigh in when you report 1st semester. Is this correct. I'm asking because DS received a letter from Pensacola informing him that he is over the weight requirement for his height and that he will need to report to the unit in the fall at the correct weight and be able to pass the PRT. The weight was not significantly over, in fact he was taped for one of the academies and would pass the BCA..... This was a matter of timing. DS is an offensive lineman during football season, so he puts on weight for football, maxes at about 240 which is still small for OL (he's 6 ft 2). After football he loses the weight for baseball and gets down to about 200-205 which meets the height and weight requirements. In this case, he was on his way down when his physical was completed.....He's in excellent shape and would pass PRT. Don't want the preliminary weight noted by the Board impact his scholarship when I know he is back down to where he needs to be now. I figured that all scholarship recipients were subject to PRT and weigh in before the scholarship is activated....and this letter probably just serves as a warning. Thoughts.
