    Hello, I have received a 3 year scholarship to Fordham for army rotc however I haven't heard anything about admission to the school. I tried calling the admissions team to ask but they won't tell me anything. The deadline March 10th is approaching close, what should I do??

    Have you been in touch with the Fordham unit to let them know? The leadership tends to have a relationship with Admissions and *may* have some influence. There is nothing wrong with advocating for yourself to your potential future unit and expressing your sincere desire.

    Advice previously posted says accept the scholarship now. Then later toward May, you can refuse it pending acceptance to a school that will accept you and has an Army ROTC program and Army ROTC approves.

    Is Fordham your absolute must have school that you would attend with the scholarship? If yes, Did you tell admissions that you have a 3 yr scholarship in hand? If not you should.

    Many on this forum say it will not make a difference. It couldn't hurt.

    Accept the scholarship regardless of admissions reach out to the Det and ask them if you should notify admissions. Follow their advice. You don't get admitted apply for a transfer to a school you area admitted.
