Congratulations to those who have received notification of a scholarship offer. This is a significant accomplishment but it is the first of several hurdles in the race. I thought it could be helpful to start a thread on advice from this point forward. I am sure other members can offer some great advice on this subject but I have two points to pass on. 1. The scholarship offer will require a formal response. I think you have a 30 day timeline. Make sure to review all the paperwork and get things in on time. 2. You will also need a physical conducted by the DODMERB. This is the next big hurdle in my opinion. The physical is fairly routine but we always read of people who have problems because they didn't follow the directions. For instance: vigorous exercise causing excess protein in urine. Best to follow the advice in the directions for preparing for the physical. You will face another anxious period waiting to get the physical results. You may be surprised by the follow up information requested, waivers required, etc. I highly recommend you read through the various forums here and become knowledgeable on this entire process. You will learn what conditions will require additional paperwork and you can get a jump on it. There is just as much experience and guidance on this subject as there was for applications. Congratulations again and best of luck!
