        I [I]think [/I]that I am right, so take it with a grain of salt...

        You're "too old" for the ROTC scholarship (age limit: 30 tender years), but not too old "for the training." I think that you still fit in the window to be a scholarshipless cadet.

            True.

            Although you can forfeit the "tuition" portion of the scholarship and take advantage of (again, I [I]think[/I] with regard to the amount) up to $10,000 for living expenses instead.

            I've been kicking myself about that as I'll barely just be too old for that myself next year when I'm back in the U.S.

              No clue if it's a case by case basis, but I am in ROTC, am 31 right now and I'll be 33 when I commission.

                [QUOTE=spc corsi]I appreciate all the imput. i will keep everyone posted on how it goes. i have an app with the ROTC folks here.[/QUOTE]

                Your age at commissioning should be the first issue you raise. If they tell you it's no problem, then get it in writing from the ROTC commander. The age waiver will need to go to Cadet Command, and prior service Soldiers get additional consideration.
