    Was wondering if someone could tell me what kind of credentials you would need to get a 4 year scholarship?

    ARMY ROTC (only)

    There is no formula, but... A strong candidate will probably have;

    Good grades (3.00+ GP)
    Good ACT/SAT (24+)
    Good Leadership (Job, Eagle Scout, varsity letters, elected positions etc)
    Good PT score
    Good interview score

    Being very strong in one area can compensate somewhat for a weaker score in another area. More is better.

    A modest look

    We have gone through this the first time. I suggest you dig through the blogs for many answers. Army, Navy and air force do things in their own unique ways. With Air Force and Navy it seems to be more about meeting quanitative standard then applying that to the school of your choice that has room for you. Your selection of major may also have alot to do with how competetive you are. (Chances better as an engineer). With Army it seems to come down to which schools you select. I suspect you need to meet a higer level for an expensive private school or out of state school. Perhaps the standard is lower for a state school. Case in point DS was a 27 ACT 3.4 unweighted, 3 Vasity letters(LAX), minimal club involvement, Did well on on interview and fitness test. He recieved a 4 year to in State Georgia Tech for engineering. My point, is that your school selections could have much to do with it, and they may be favoring in-state schools from a cost point o view, so don't overlook them in your process. Hope this helps and good luck.
