    I was wondering if I stand a good chance at obtaining a Army ROTC scholarship
    to U of Hawaii, Umass Amherst, and Syracuse.

    3.33 unweighted
    3.5 weighted
    25 act
    3 years football (going to be 4 next season)
    Police cadet
    Lived in Abu Dhabi for 1.5 years while my dad was a diplomat
    So I stand a good chance?
    Thanks

    What year? SAT scores? Schools are a little pricey? Wouldn't bet on it.

    And I would add which schools are in state, if any? If you're still abroad what is your parents residence in the US?

    He did a good job of covering both sides of the country with his school selections.

    Are one of those schools listed an in-state school for you.

    Since he said he was going to have a 4th year of football next year I assume he is a Junior right now.

    Cj12, I would start looking at a plan B, and at schools where you can attend ROTC as a non scholarship cadet and still afford the tuition as a plan C. Things are only getting more competitive with much fewer scholarships being awarded, even to those with much higher stats then you have listed.

    Good Luck

    OP. In fact, if you find a school that meets Jcleppe's plan C suggestion, you should make sure you add it to your Plan A list if you really would att4end there.

    SAT conversion for 25 ACT is 1150. A 27 would convert to 1220 and would be more in line with the typical scholarship recipient, so I agree that your application isn't a safe bet from this perspective. I also sense that the difference between your weighted and unweighted GPA indicates that you don't have a majority of AP/Honors classes on your transcript either. Could be a product of having lived abroad, but you don't mention when that was.

    If one of the publics is in-state (I'm guessing UMass Amherst because it isn't a typical OOS public choice whereas everyone loves going to school in Hawaii :cool:) you could be in a better position. If not you are definitely fighting an uphill battle.

    And formal leadership titles with job descriptions available to you as a Police Cadet?
