    Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum, so I'm still getting used to how everything works around here! Anyways, I am almost finished with my AROTC scholarship (I just have to interview and do my PFT), and was wondering what my chances would be for a scholarship. I realize that it's very hard to tell who's going to get a scholarship, but I've recently started to feel pretty anxious about my chances and wanted to see what you guys thought. So, here goes:

    Junior

    3.3 Unweighed/3.7 Weighed GPA
    Member of Tri-M Musical, English, and National Junior Honor Societies
    1810 SAT, 540 Math 660 CR (I'm looking to retake this for a higher score)
    6 APs/4 Honors classes by Graduation
    400+ Hours of Community Service
    3 Varsity Letters for Wrestling, Swimming, and Soccer (4 by graduation, I'm also most likely to captain the Swim Team senior year)
    3.5 yrs Martial Arts exp. (Private league, mix Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu)
    Wrestling Pee-Wee Coach 1 yr.
    Student Government Representative (Class and School), 4 yrs exp.
    Board of Education/District Representative, 1. yr. exp.
    Section Leader - Percussion, Jazz Band 4 yrs. exp.
    2 lead roles in school drama productions
    1 yr. lifeguarding exp.
    4 yrs. Camp Counselor exp.

    My Unofficial PFT Results:
    7:38 Mile Time, 41 Pushups/min, 45 sit-ups/min

    I definitely need to improve my SAT scores and PFT results, but I have time for that as far as I'm aware...

    So, what do you guys think? Please be honest, I've tried my absolute hardest to get a commission with a scholarship and I'm willing to do almost anything to secure that for myself. Thank you for reading, and please let me know what you think!

    I would advice you to go talk to the cadre at whatever college you're planning on attending, they may have on campus scholarships. I did this and recieved a three year scholarship. With your stats you could probably get a 3 or 4 year scholarship. For comparisions sake your academics are stronger than mine, but on the PFT I ran a 5:47 mile, did 57 pushups , and 54 sit-ups. Good luck in whatever you decide to do.
