    Hey guys,

    I have a couple of really quick questions about Army ROTC. First off, should you predict in the Canidate Activity Record what your going to do next year and awards your going to receive, like Varsity Letter? Also, I have an interview scheduled for Monday, but my application is not totally completed. I have yet to complete my essay. Should I complete my essay and submit my whole application before my interview on Monday? Finally, the directions for Army ROTC says that you have to have submitted SAT scores and an official transcript before you have an interview. Cadet Command should have received my transcript a few days ago and they should have received my SAT scores a few weeks ago, but I don't know where to check if they have added both of those things to my file yet. I faxed an unofficial transcript to them today to make sure that they have a transcript on file before my interview, but again there's no way to check if they have received it. If I sent both of those things out, but they are yet to update them to my file, will this pose a problem when I go to my interview on Monday? I'm thinking that I should just bring an unofficial transcript with me to the interview just in case. Thank you reading this and answering my questions.

    I would just do like you're doing and bring an unofficial transcript, but also a screenshot of your ACT/SAT scores just in case they haven't gotten them. And I predicted what I would get senior year, ie sports I would play, clubs i would be in, varsity letters received. Just make sure you follow through and do everything you put down.

    I would recommend bring a typed out resume, they first get a lot of administrative work done before the interview starts, record your GPA, tests scores, etc. Having this handy not only makes them happy, but facilitates the interview well. I brought an unofficial transcript and was fine.

    Also try and find out how you are going to be assessed in your interview, I don’t quite remember where I found it, but do some digging on Goggle and you can better prepare yourself for the types of questions/what they are looking for. There is an outline, somewhere on Google, that your answers will be recorded on and you receive a score depending on how well you answer the questions, along with other criteria. For instance you get points for multiple letters in sports, leadership positions and extra circulars. If I recall the highest score is 200, I’m sure Clarksonarmy or Marist College will pop over here in a bit, correct me and be much more of a help.

    Might want to talk to the unit and ask what you can expect. I know if one of my applicants were to email me asking what the interview with my boss will be like, I would be more than happy to give her/him some pointers. Hopefully the school you are looking at will do the same.
    a couple other thiings...if you are faxing you are taking a gamble.
