Just a heads up on the scholarship payments. The AF pays when they pay not when the payment is due. Some schools are better then others about pending scholarship payments. U of AZ the date due is the hard so you may have to pay the money then get the money charged back to the credit card. Zona is pretty good about it.
Florida lets you defer if you have a scholarship, the drop dead date is in November. The normal you must pay everything date was Sept. 1st. ROTC paid Sept. 11.
The book money there is no reasoning to when that shows up. It showed up Oct 27 and March 7th. So if you can defer those it helps.
The stipend came quickly, Aug 31st. The pay is split on the 1st and 15th of the month. Make sure that you have a checking account before you go to school, they want a voided check to start it. USAA bank is great and they pay all ATM fees which are steep on campus.
I'm sure Bullet already has the checking account with your son that USAA offers and that has been great for transferring funds to my son. The boy had to pay his frat fees and some car repairs. Yes he took his car, that was the deal we made with him, get a scholarship you can take the car. He needs it to drive to hockey pratice in Jax.
Back to Scholarship.....to start it you need to pass DODMERB, make weight and pass the PFT, but they don't tell you that they give you a pass for fall of your freshman year because the rules state that you must have to gone to PT eight times before they can test you. Also you must pass the AFOQT they gave it to my son before classes began. (son says you would have to an IQ of less than 80 not to pass) They will have you go to an orientation for a couple days before schools starts so plan for it (you need to move in the early). They measure you up for uniforms and shoes, son had to wait for his shoes--clown size feet. Also buy a good shoe shine kit and v neck tshirts.
