    ^^^ I would say you have a good to excellent chance for AROTC and perhaps NROTC. You seem to be in good shape on leadership and athletics. Academics are pretty good. I think you have a better shot at AROTC only because of the biology major. It's hard to tell where it would fall in Navy's Tier system although I'd put it in Tier II only because general science is also there.

    My concern was the blaring 25 composite ACT. I don't know about AROTC and NROTC, but for AFROTC you would need to have closer to a 30 ACT for a chance. I am assuming NROTC would be around that marker too because most posters will say NROTC is the most competitive of all 3.

    AFROTC and NROTC give @85% of their scholarships to STEM majors, so like kinnem stated due to your major it might be a reach.

    Remember for AROTC and NROTC it is tied to your college too. There is an allotted number of scholarships for each det. Nobody is going to be able to tell you :thumb: or :thumbdown: because nobody knows how competitive the pool is for your school selection slate.
    ~~~ I.E. applying to UVA as your IS, I would say NO. Applying to GMU for IS is a maybe. VCU is probably a better match.
