    Didn't think my ds would receive the denial letter on his AROTC scholarship until May 1st. He received it yesterday.....certainly will be applying for 3 yr campus based scholarship at VTCC.

    DS should not to give up, nor should your support and encouragement wane.

    Good friend of my DS was denied 4yr AROTC scholarship. She joined ROTC anyway, earned good grades, got fitter and received 3 yr. Now she is a top MS II.

    Best of luck!

    Hang in there!!! Serveral non scholarship cadets in my son's unit earned 3.5 and 3 yr campus scholarships this year. Show up in great shape and do your best to max the AFPT. Also make sure you are squared away... haircut in regs, proper PT gear, remove piercings and or guages. Lastly do your best to get good grades and good things will come to you. Best of luck.:thumb:

    .....and once you're in shape, stay that way and work harder. The cadre likes to see improvement as time goes on. Don't settle for just passing. I know at the schools of both my children that cadets have been dismissed from their respective units this year for poor fitness levels....

    Well, now you have yet another piece of useless trivia to add to the list of things you're knowledgeable about. The central campus around the drill field, where it dominates everything, is very beautiful, due to the Hokie Stone.
