    Just wanted to reach out and see if anyone in these forums has finished their Army ROTC scholarship application yet?
    If you have, could you give some stats too?
    I've finished mine and am trying to see or start a chat with some young men or women who are pursuing the same things as me.
    Thanks!

    Some recent statistics for the 2015 AROTC scholarship winners for the 2019 graduating class. Remember, these include 3 and 4 year winners.

    The 4 year winners average was quite a bit higher than this and around a 29 on the ACT and 1290 on the SAT. That's higher than USMA whose 2019 class was 28 and 1254, respectively. Also, the average GPA for a 4 year winner is about 3.9-4.0 from what I was told by a PMS. I just thought I would let everyone know so they know the targets to shoot for a 4 year AROTC scholarship.

    The Cadet Command selection board makes decisions based on the strength of your application compared to the applicant pool. The profile for the 2015 academic year nation-wide recipients which includes all 3 and 4 year winners:

    94% were in the top 50% of their classes in academic (69% were in the top 25%)
    36% were class officers
    90% earned varsity sports letters
    60% were varsity team sports captains
    32% were in JROTC
    17% were club presidents
    3.6 average GPA
    1246 math + critical reading SAT; 27 ACT composite score

    Cadet Command awards both three year and four year scholarships through the centralized selection process.

    The top candidates are selected for four year scholarships, others are awarded three-year scholarships, and others are not selected at all. If you are awarded a 4-year scholarship, then your benefits will be paid your freshman year as long as you pass the Army fitness test, medical exam, and meet height and weight requirements.
