    I feel like I'm a relatively qualified candidate- 3.7 unweighted GPA, 3.9 weighted, third year Army JRTOC cadet (Battalion Command Sergeant Major), National Honors Society member, third year varsity golfer and first year golf captain (I'm a girl but I had to qualify for the boy's team), President of my school's GSA, and 13 year participant in Chung-Do-Kwan Tae-Kwon-Do (I'm a newly promoted black belt and registered Assistant Instructor). I also score a 225 on the APFT. The problem I see is that according to the standards, I'm 10 lb overweight. But when I get taped, I fit the body fat standards. Does anyone have any idea of how badly that would effect my chances of getting an Army ROTC scholarship?

    I honestly believe that if you perform well on the fitness evaluation it won't matter. My BMI is pretty large because of my muscle density, but I performed very well on the fitness evaluation and received the scholarship. However, academics and ECAs will also play a large factor.

    As long as you pass the tape test you're good. I'd try to bring up that PFT. Not that it's bad but there is definitely room for improvement.
