    Hi,
    My name is Alec Edelson I am a senior in high school. I have a 3.74 gpa, four varsity letters, and have been an active member of student council two out of the four years I was in high school. I went to an all guys boarding school south kent for one year. I am now at a private school in Princeton, The Lewis School. I did my official interview at Seton Hall University. After the interview we went and meet with other cadre at Seton Hall University. After this he sat down with me and my dad again. He straight up told me and my dad that he would be shocked if I did not get a full army ROTC scholarship to one of my 7 schools I put down. If I did not get a full scholarship he said he would expect the number to be very high. At the interview he checked off every box giving me a maximum point total for the interview. My physical fitness scores as well were very high I did the calculations online. It said 184 out of 200. I am wondering if any one who did receive a full scholarship on the first board, what were your credentials? I could really use some help, with building up my hope for the second board that just began. My life's goal is to be an Officer in the United States Army. With or without a scholarship I will accomplish this. Thanks!! I have been accepted to the number one school on my list already Texas Christian University. I have also been accepted to the number three school on my list with 40,000 merit based over four years The University of Vermont.

    Its hard to assess your chances without knowing your SAT/ACT score.

    I would think it would also hard to assess not knowing how many others have applied for those colleges. If 100 apply and they have 10 slots, it will be different in gauging the chances than if only 10 applied for 7 slots.
