    So I was wondering when the scholarship board for AFROTC meets and do they send a letter informing you that you did not receive a scholarship if you don't? Also any guesses on my chances on getting a scholarship, my stats are as follows: 1270 SAT (Critical reading and math), 28 composite ACT, 3.68 GPA, although I did, as my interviewer said "failed the running portion"(I ran a 15-ish minute 1.5 mile,:frown:) of the PFT, I did perform near max values for push-ups and crunches. So that being said, I know they send you, in writing, a notification for receiving a scholarship but do they also notify you if you don't, and my estimated chance at receiving a scholarship.

    Thanks Y'all.

    My guess is that Pima doesn't think your stats are high enough..

    You didn't enter any leadership experience and your stats are on the low side.

    I think it was probably more of a direct answer to his first question. Nevertheless that failed run time is a killer and I would be expecting the "Thank you, but" letter. Isn't the PFT pass/fail? Fail one part and you've failed the PFT? Hope alternate plans are in place.

    I did forget to mention that I have had a part-time job for a little over a year, and I am one of the captains of the swim team

    Kinnem was correct, it was just a simple answer to a direct question.

    That being said the run time is going to kill you, and it may have had an impact on the CoC's rec. Someone can answer this because I know for the CFA, bust one potion and you bust the entire test. I don't know about the PFA.

    The big factor that the OP did not place into the mix was if they are going tech or non-tech.

    There are really too many ?s to give a fair chance. I.E. not only the tech vs non-tech, but # of APs, class rank, school profile. 3.68 no APs is different than a 3.68 with 9 APs. A 3.68 top 15% and 35% go Ivy, is different than 3.68, top 35% and 15% go Ivy.

    The importance is come Aug. nobody at the det will care if you are scholarship, what they will care about is getting that run down. I am assuming you are a girl. Start running now, and run in every type of weather. When it is 96 degrees and 90% humidity get out there and run even if your lungs feel like they are on fire. If you go to bed Friday a.m. at 1, get up and run at 6, because trust me you will have late nights with little sleep in college. If it is drizzling rain, run. All of these things will occur in ROTC . The first few weeks will be for first impressions.
