    Hey i just applied for an Army ROTC scholarship and was hoping someone could tell me if ill be competitive for one. I'm going to do ROTC regardless of whether I receive a scholarship or not but I'm just curious where I might stand.
    Here's what I have:
    SAT: math-660 verbal-610
    GPA: 3.5
    PFT: 1 mile run: 6min 20 sec
    1 min of pushups: 54
    1 min of situps: 48
    I'm also captain of the varsity lacrosse team at school, played varsity hockey since sophomore year, am in NHS, and completed 5 AP classes with a 4 or 5 on all of the exams and taking 2 more this year as well. My guidance counselor said I can be hopeful but not to expect anything. What do you guys think?

    Personally, I think you will be competitive.
    Can't say for certain because it also depends on your essays and interview

    thtetra, your stats are excellent! You should be quite competitive for a scholarship assuming your essays and interview, as mentioned by OC Josh, are on a level with your academic and athletic achievements.

    thank you both for your assessments.. also i was wondering if you do get a scholarship are you awarded it only at one single school and that one only or can you get an option to use it at some of your choices?

    The Army will offer you several choices based on the selections you put down on your application. You have 30 days to select one of those schools to accept your scholarship for. However, the Army does give you the chance to switch that choice later on if you change your mind on where you would like to attend or you don't get accepted by the school you originally chose. This is provided that there are still scholarship slots open at the school you would like to change.
