    Oh my son got a 4 year scholarship to a choice of three schools. His first choice was on it and he got waitlisted, so he said he would take the spot in the spring and hope that they have a spot in the fall. Well, he got the letter last week (on his birthday), that he wasn't able to get a spot in the fall.
    So now, he is going to transfer as he really does want to start college in the fall. However where he is hoping to transfer to was not one of the choices. He was accepted into the college so that should be ok and this college is also part of the same battalion as his first choice.
    At this late stage, is it ok to try to transfer?.

    It's always OK to try. It might be more difficult to achieve. It's still only May though so go for it.

    What did the ROO at that Battalion say? I’m sure your son asked there first, right?

    The ROO is the same at both colleges. Yes, my son emailed him first. He has been totally aware of the situation and says it should be ok.
