My DS has his AROTC interview on 8/26/11 at VMI. He was proactive and also scheduled a meeting with the wrestling coach that morning as well since it is one of his top school choices. He had an admissions question and was emailed back today telling him since he was coming to VMI on 8/26 to also stop by admissions as well. According to the VMI website he has to wait until 09/01/11 to actually apply there. I wont be attending with him so he will be all on his own that day, which I think is a good thing. I don't know how all of this will turn out in the end but I must admit I am proud of my son being proactive on his own and trying to make things happen. He also has started making arrangements on his own to visit the other schools he is interested in. The AROTC interview is the last item he has to complete. He already took the DoDMERB physical back in July and the status page indicates they have everything else and he rec'd a letter stating the same thing from CC yesterday. He has also applied to the six schools (will apply to VMI on 09/01) he ranked on the AROTC webiste and got an acceptance letter back from one already too. So I guess now its just hurry up and wait As I have stated before, this is all new to me and my family so if there is other stuff we need to know please feel free to tell us. Thanks.
