    Lookin pretty solid there for scholarship!

    Boys State is definitely a plus! I will say ASVAB has nothing to do with the scholarship - that's only used for enlistment.

    And I am assuming you are/have been taking Honors/AP courses? And also hoping you scored at least 1100 on SAT for math + critical reading?

    Glad to see you do XC too :) I see that track has definitely helped your mile time. Best of luck w/ track this year!

    Well - you're heck of a lot more qualified than I am! All of your resume looks pretty solid to me man.

    I assume you still would want to do ROTC if you don't get a national scholarship?

    Thanks for the responses. And if I didn't get the scholarship I would still plan on doing the program. By the way, is PT scores timed? I checked out the charts and saw that if you get around 60 push ups its 100 points, but I didn't know if it was timed. Thanks!

    Yes, the PT is timed. It's max pushups in a minute and also max situps in a minute.
