    Hello everyone. I wasn't picked up the first board for an AROTC scholarship ( I did receive an Ike AROTC scholarship but i'll probably decline it). If you guys look at my stats, do you think I'm competitive for the second board? If there are any things missing you think, let me know. I might have just forgot to list it. Thanks

    You have an impressive resume. That being said, how did you interview go? What your interviewer said in his/her comments have a big impact. I am on a 4-year scholarship and had similar stats and class. Patience is key, but from what I can see you are competitive. Good luck and Go Army!

    Impressive stats. What about leadership positions? Captain of any varsity team? Club leadership positions? Also, what were your top school choices? School choices may have played a role for the first board.

    Boys State is good, class rank is good, lots of participation and lots of sports is good but didn't see team Capt or club officer listed so that is a minus. SAT/ACT seems a little low for a 4 yr AROTC scholarship compared to last year. Many of the first board winners had SATs over 2000. My DS was awarded second board -- SAT was 1950. IMHO your School choices will most likely influence whether you are offered a 3 or 4 yr AROTC scholarship.

    Completely agree with everything Falcon said! Great looking app. If you can retake the sat to get a better score (I just received a 4 year off the 1st board with a 1920. Rest of application was pretty similar). If you can't retake I'm sure you'll get one by 2nd or 3rd board.

    My interview went pretty well. I can't remember any concrete comments that my PMS made but she said my application was good and my responses were what she was looking for. I do have some leadership positions. I was the drill instructor for my high school's marching band, I was named an "official captain" but my coach but me in charge of a couple lanes during swim practice so I guess that counts? My school choices in order were
    1. Citadel
    2. Norwich
    3. North Georgia
    4. UCONN
    5. Penn State
    6. Boston University
    7. Niagara Univeristy

    And I was offered an Ike Skelton ECP Scholarship. I'm planning to decline it because I want to do 4 years of ROTC at the same school, not go 2 years to a JMC and then have to find another school to finish up. Seeing from your comments, I have pretty good chance at a second or third board scholarship so I think it'd be best to decline the offer and keep competing correct? I really would like to get a 4 year or 3 year and stay at one school

    Would you guys recommend that an ECP scholarship winner with SAT scores of 540 math, 570 CR, and 580 writing just take the ECP scholarship because they're not competitive enough for a four year scholarship?

    What are your other stats NavyMom24? You may have lower scores but great things in other areas that could make you competitive

    Falcon A, do you think with my stats and my school choices I have a chance at getting a 4 or 3 year to my school choices? Or should I think about accepting my ECP scholarship?

    I am not sure . . . the best you can do is research the threads on this site using the search tool in the upper right . . . plug "AROTC Stats" or "3yr AROTC Scholarship winners" and see what comes up. The UNG link I gave you above is a pretty good summary of the 2015 applicants and AROTC scholarship winners . . . each year is a little different. You have to judge for yourself what is best for you.
