    Hello!

    I'm new to this forum as you can tell by my post count but I have a couple of questions I would like to ask regarding the AFROTC scholarship. Here are my statistics:

    UWGPA (/4.0)(9-11): 3.8 on a 10 point scale [90=A]
    WGPA (/4.8)(9-11): 4.3 on a 10 point scale [90=A]

    Course Rigor (9-11): 4 AP classes

    SAT: 690 Math, 560 Reading = 1250C (Retaking in one day.)

    PFA:
    60 pushups
    60 situps
    10:30 run

    Activities:

    1. Job (20 hours/week)(Paid)(10-11)
    2. Volunteer (400+ hours)(9-11)
    3. Youth Group (8 hours/week)(9-11)
    4. National Honor Society (11)
    5. California Scholarship Federation (10-11)
    6. Wrestling (11)
    7. Water Project (10-11)

    Aiming for: Type 7
    Major: Electrical Engineering [yes, I am doing it because I am interested not because it is a needed major.]

    I realize that it's selective and without the interview results nobody can tell but how am I looking as far as competitiveness? New SAT scores should be 1300+ composite. CR+M

    Thanks guys!

    P.S: I'm still joining without a scholarship if I do not win one but what are my chances of an eventual scholarship throughout the years? It would help a lot if I were to attend a bigger university.

    Your stats look fine except for the SAT. You really want it over 1300 best sitting to shore up other areas of weaknesses. In your case it would be athletics and leadership.

    If I recall correctly last year the median SAT was 1280, so there are cadets, especially tech majors that get an edge since 80% of scholarships are tech. Flip side most tech majors are stronger test takers than non tech.

    Thanks Pima! I just got a 29 on my ACT and was wondering if that is better than the 1250. I'm still waiting on my SAT retake scores as well. Also, I have slightly high blood pressure. Will this prevent me from getting a scholarship?
