    Read the "What are my chances thread"

    Everything you need to know is in there

    I think we should have them removed and have a private message sent with a link to that thread. "Chance me" is very redundant

    I assume you are already enrolled in college and are participating in the AROTC Program.

    By all means continue your application, but you should also work on your college GPA. How are your current APFT scores?

    Make sure you are participating fully in ROTC and watch closely the changes in ROTC that are coming. You chances of getting an appointment to the USMA are honestly low and ROTC may become you only option. Work to stand out in ROTC so you give yourself an opportunity to Contract, unless you are on scholarship and already contracted.

    Working on your GPA and keeping your APFT scores high will keep you in the running for Active Duty
