Just kidding... But seriously, my son earned an AROTC 4-year national scholarship and started school last week. He had been in contact with the Cadre at his school and turned in all the necessary paper over the summer, including the dreaded 104-R. Now I believe he is waiting to take the APFT to finalize the scholarship. I think he was told that they wouldn't do the official one till October/November? Giving enough time for the other cadets to get in shape. But they take an unofficial one next week. He is taking the Room/Board option and from my understanding he won't get the money until he passes this. (No problem for him.) No deferment, so we are paying all out of pocket costs until then. So here is the nuts and bolts to my question... Has anyone received their funds yet? When is it normally distributed? Will it be the same way each year? Thank again for everyone's help!! Can always count on this crew for answers.
