I am about to begin my second semester of my Junior year in high school. Prior to changing schools at the beginning of this year, I had A's, B's, C's, and D's bringing my GPA for my Freshman & Sophomore years to a 2.8. Upon changing schools, I joined my Air Force JROTC group, and it has been quite life changing. I had not intended to go to college until about 3 months ago when I was speaking with my SASI and ASI (A Ret. Lt. Col, and Ret. CMsgt respectively) and expressed my intent to simply enlist in the Air Force, but with their pressure for me to attain a higher education for a military career, I now feel as though it is something that I really need to make happen for myself. My JROTC group requires a minimum of C's to be able to participate in unit activities, such as Honor Guard, of which I spend an hour each a day and weekends doing, and other unit events of which I am as actively participating as possible,. My grades improved exponentially to A's and B's giving me a GPA this semester of a 3.4. I have also begun learning German, and will have 2 years of by my graduation. I am taking my ACT at the end of this school year, and I took my ASVAB before break and will be getting my scores from when I go back to school after Christmas break. Athletically and Physically, I played football and ran track for 3 years from middle school into my Freshman year. From a P.T. Test a few weeks ago, I have a mile time of about 7:10, and can do 40 pushups and 52 sit ups in 1 minute. I have no issues such as Asthma, ADAH or anything thereof that would disqualify me. As I sit right now, I know I do not stand out much, however is there still a possibility that I could get myself where I need to be to qualify by my Senior year? I feel as though I must make this my reality.
