My son was awarded a 3 year AD US Army national scholarship. He has passed DoDMERB, obviously has very good grades so not worried about minimum GPA standards, and once APFT test is given he will not have a problem passing that. Assuming he keeps up his grades and passes the fitness tests can someone tell me at what point does he officially "contract"? I understood it as by signing acceptance of the scholarship, he officially contracts beginning of his sophomore year and accepts his military service post graduation so long as he passes all necessary APFT, GAP minimums. Thanks for any clarification as he is getting different answers.
