    I know you guys can't say 100% cause you're not the deciding board but can you let me know if I'm heading in right direction? 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?

    Didn't you just ask this same question on another thread on this board Saturday? Looks like you received a few good answers on that thread, doubt you'll get any more info by starting another one.

    I can't figure out how you didn't get an offer in the 1st round with your overall stats. Keep your head up, your time is coming. Of course that's just my opinion and this is the government we're talking about so anything is possible.

    Thanks K2Rider. My SAT are not awesome but they're decent and my interview went really well. Do you guys think that maybe since I checked off the box that I was interested in an early commissioning scholarship ( I did get one but I'm declining it ) that they just gave me that instead of a 4 year?

    No idea how that works... but it sounds like a reasonable possibility

    Like said above, no crystal ball here, but you look like a strong candidate. You have listed very competitive schools, so it really matters the other candidates that listed those schools and what their stats are. There is nothing you can do now, you did your part and applied, now you get to wait! Good luck to you!

    That is a definite possibility. You may want to check into the fact you were already offered a scholarship and if that means you are no longer in the running for any other scholarship.

    Jcleppe, there was an option to decline the ECP scholarship with no penalty if we wanted to compete in the 2nd board for a 4 year/3year. I declined the

    I declined the ECP scholarship and will therefore be competing in the 2nd board.
