    I apologize if this is addressed somewhere, I could not find it.

    Does anyone know the % or points awarded and different components of the application?
    I know they look at GPA, SAT/ACT, Sports/ school clubs, leadership, PFT, the interview etc.
    Probably missing some things.

    Does anyone know how each is weighed in the total picture of choosing winners of 3 and 4 year scholarships?

    It's a survey that your son filled out with the application that asked like 50 questions. It helps Cadet Command determined the likely hood a applicant will complete the AROTC program. Don't worry too much about it since no one knows how it's scored for the application.

    Thanks.

    Is there point value needed for 3 yr vs 4 year?

    What I had been told about getting a 3 yr vs 4 yr deals with the tuition for the school's your scholarship will be assigned to and how much money Cadet Command has left.

    I listed St. Edward's University, Trinity University, and Norwich University. However, Norwich gives free room and board no matter 3 yr or 4 yr scholarship as long as you maintain a 2.50 GPA. It's called the I.D. White scholarship.

    DS got a 3 year to RPI and Syracuse. Both are expensive schools in the 60k a year range. So, I can understand why he got a 3 year offer.
