    I'm currently a high school senior and was just looking for some advice in regards to my chances of receiving a 4 or 3 year scholarship. Please be honest! Here are my stats

    6/333 class rank
    3.6 unweighted 4.9 weighted
    I plan on having 60 college credit hours from FGCU
    My SAT score is very low- 1700
    I'm a full time dual enrolled student so most of the clubs I've been in are at the college level

    Global medical brigades (traveled to a 3rd world country to administer health aid)
    Libertarian club
    Debate team
    Law club
    Youth in government
    Played tennis through a private team USTA 4 years
    Did all JROTC clubs such as Drill, Rifle, exhibition, raiders, color guard, academic team
    I've also worked 30 hours a week to help my parents pay bills

    PT is as follows: 46 push-ups, 65 sit-ups, 730 mile

    I'm applying to The university of Florida, the university of Ohio, and the university of central Florida. Thanks in advance!

    We need the scores of your individual SAT sections.
    Also, there are credit requirements. You will not be able to use those credits if youre on ROTC scholarship.

    I received a 580 M and 570 R. Yes I have come to realize that and if I were to get a scholarship, that would not matter to me.

    Gpa and class rank are on point.
    Sat qualifies but to my knowledge is a little lower than the average sat score of a 4 year winner. It isn't that much lower though.
    If you're a male.... dude.. push ups. Do more. Practice every night you can add 50% in just a few weeks.
    Run is good but you could drop some time fairly easily.
    Jrotc is helpful.. but any leadership positions???
    Clubs are ok... but any leadership positions???
    No varsity sports???

    SAL
    Scholar, athlete, leader

    Scholar I think you are fine.
    Athlete and leader.. I hope you just forgot to put some things on the list you provided.


    I'm currently applying for a scholarship. Board ready atm. I'm not trying to put you down if it comes across that way. Just giving honest feedback based on my understanding.
    Best of luck to you. Keep pushing.

    Get those up to the mid 600's and I think you'd be in pretty good shape.

    Am I the only one that picked up on these 2 things?
    1. the cgpa vs wcgpa is huge.
    ~ I am only guessing, but your weighted scale must be at least at a 5.5, maybe 6.0
    ~ They will use their algorithm for that factor. I am going to take a leap and say their scoring system will equate to a lower cgpa/wcgpa. I believe weighted is a 4.5 scale.
    2. 60 college credit hours, if transferable to your college automatically tosses you out of the HSSP selection because they state you need to have 30 or less credits when applying for HSSP

    I thought kronk spoke to the college credit issue. AROTC is a 120 credit process those college credits are nice but you can't use them unless you pursue a double major/minor etc. The Army wants you to take 120 credits at your school.

    I was mostly struck by his serving in both the Libertarian club and the Youth in Government club.

    You sound on par with my high school stats except for the athletics (I was awarded a 4 year scholarship). I played at least one varsity sport a year, out of three sports a year, and held leadership positions for most. PT scores look pretty good as well well although it would help to get the push ups a little higher and try for a 7:00 or below run time. Any community service would also be good to help beef up your application. Best of luck to you!
