This is what we did. My DS has a 3 year AROTC scholarship. The first year he had the vmi local scholarship. The second year when his Army scholarship kicked in he lost the local.I called VMI Financial Aid today regarding DS. Was told that the VMI Local scholarship will "go away" if there is a ROTC scholarship. Regarding what Falcon A states above with tuition OR room & board, since we are out of state, we will go with the tuition being paid instead!
