    SAL:
    Scholar
    Athlete
    Leader

    Leadership wise.. your application looks outstanding.

    Scholar wise.. you're decent. I messed up my Gpa too so I can relate haha. CR SAT score could use a bump but it's decent.

    Athlete wise.. you have a club sport. Varsities? The scholarship puts a lot of stress on sports and teamwork. If they didn't care about it, it wouldn't be a percentage of the OML. Work on getting a sport in next semester.

    Congrats on battalion commander. That's a lot of work and I'm sure you earned it.

    Best of luck to you!

    GPA is low-- But my school told me my WEIGHTED was a 3.1, turns out to AROTC it was a 3.7 unweighted. You'll see how that turns out within the portal.
    Is it possible for you to raise your SAT score more? Aim 1280 between CR and M.
    Any leadership that you were voted into and not appointed/promoted to?
    Keep working that PFT. If youve never seriously lifted before the first 2 months can do wonders for you.
    Mix up distance running and sprints, dont do just distance to improve that mile time.

    Leadership wise you look excellent. However, your physical scores are a little low. You might want to quickly start a workout program involving weights and running.
    Keep working and best of luck to you!
