Hello ladies and gents of the forum! Firstly, I apologize for posting something that many have probably asked before, and thank you all for your time. My question refers to the AFROTC Scholarships, which I've stumbled upon about 2 months ago whilst searching SMC's. I've noticed that they are focused QUITE on the Engineering/Tech/Math majors, while there's also the remaining 20% that are handed to Foreign Languages. This last little chunk is where I'm aiming to get. However, looking at some of the other applicants, it's as if I'm running against a wall! I'm just wondering how my stats would look to a board of senior officers, or better yet - actual servicemen. Here's my general background: I am a native speaker of Russian(Which will be my desired major listed, though I will either DM or minor Criminal Justice), and was born/had lived there until 10. I have perfect fluency in both Russian/English. I've been interested in Law Enforcement since age 10. This resulted in me taking dual-credit classes, assisting local SRT, and being a member of Police Explorers(Also assisted in doubling said program via recruitment). I'm also currently a Community Service Officer. My ACT score was 31, GPA 3.79(uw), and Class Rank at top 20%. I've been honors/accel Math and Science for all 4 years. I generally take lead on group projects. I was borderline obese sophomore year(WoW player, of course.) Basically built myself up, dropped 50 lbs, and played football for a year. Current PA score(self tested) was at 86. I'm a lifter, not a runner(6'1, 208), but that's nothing another month or two of training can't fix. I contacted my local ROTC head;was told he'd like to have me in his cadre. Sadly it will never be my detachment because the college has no Russian. So I guess my ultimate question is: What are my odds, as a native speaker, of getting a scholarship? Does something like that increase your odds over the run-of-the-mill student? I would REALLY appreciate any and all criticism, so please don't hold back! Thank you all again for your time. P.S.- I'm hoping to end up in OSI if I do get commissioned.
