    Hello all,
    Just have a few questions that me and a few other fellow cadets have about how we are selected for EA if we are currently on scholarship.

    I'm currently on a Type 7 Scholarship as a freshman on my second semester with a 3.4 GPA (Probably will be higher after this semester), a 27 ACT score (29 super-scored), currently a 92 on the PFA, and majoring in Electrical Engineering, yet I've been feeling increasingly uneasy about getting an EA. It's early, I know, but I was just wondering, do they take in account that I'm already on a scholarship in good standing? Is there any kind of advantage of being on scholarship? Or am I just out of luck if I'm being outclassed by someone else, even if I've kept a reasonable distance from the minimum requirements for keeping my scholarship? I'm just worried that if I don't get selected, then that means my scholarship gets snagged from right under my feet, and I really don't think I'll be able to recover financially from that. (I probably won't have to pay considering I didn't void the contract or anything) but still. I'll have to drop out of college because my family and I aren't exactly in good financial standings. It's been a blessing to even be able to attend a college as most of my family did not have that opportunity! So am I worrying over nothing?

    Your scholarship has nothing to do with EA allocations, they have no idea nor does it go into consideration. Your stats look ok, just keep working. Nothing you can do about it if you gave it your best.

    Enrollment Allocation boards are scholarship blind. AFROTC does not take your super score. You're scores are okay but there is always room for improvement. Start working now so you aren't worrying come PSP next year.

    Use this summer to study the AFOQT. Many cadets have problems with the time allocations allowed during the test. Even if you get an SFT slot, but failed the AFOQT you will need to pass it prior to attending SFT, and the AF only allows you to take it twice.

    I also agree that you want to get your PFA up by at least 4 points.

    @Pima just a heads up, you can attend SFT without passing the AFOQT. I believe you are supposed to pass it before the end of your fall AS300 semester.

    I guess they have changed it once again. Most cadets took the AFOQT in the fall of 200 yr, thus waiting 6 months would mean they can take it in Spring of their 200 year. That would be their 2nd and last time they can take it.

    You could also get a waiver to be able to take it a third time.

    Your ACT is not superscored. As stated above, your scholarship has no affect on EA. Start thinking of a plan B.
