I know that this will vary with each detachment, but as an AFROTC 4 year type 7 scholarship recipient, about how long does it take to be contracted? And what all do I need to do to make that happen? I know that I need to pass a PFT, and I know that that won't be till October. Does that mean I have to go ahead and pay my bill and wait to be reimbursed? Or am I completely responsible for paying for my tuition until I'm contracted? I'm assuming that the book allowance/stipends also won't start until I'm contracted?
