    First off, happy holidays to everyone! Hey everyone I just recently had my interview for an AFROTC Scholarship on December 15th and I am REALLY anxious to know my chances of getting a scholarship. I'm pretty sure there are many people on this forum that feel the same way :yllol:. Thanks in advance for any answers and have a happy and safe holiday!

    Is this 1600 out of a potential 2400?
    What are your critical reading and math scores?

    I think your academics (GPA & SAT) are a little weak. Look at the attached link for SAT & GPA averages. Hopefully your PT, leadership and interview scores will be high enough to offset those.

    Are you sure you want to pursue a career in engineering? Most of the engineering students I've seen have fairly high math SAT scores. Not to say that you can't be successful in engineering but it does require a lot of "high" level math. Certainly the Air Force likes engineers, but you also need to be able to graduate with a degree.

    Good Luck!

    Well hopefully my PT and interview scores do help.
