    I posted a thread here a few months ago about being a high school senior and ROTC scholarships. I am no longer in high school as I am taking a gap year, and was wondering if I was able to apply for the full Army ROTC scholarship. Turns out I am:

    Cpt Proctor is incorrect. As long as you have not entered
    College, you can compete for a 4-year National Scholarship.

    I am stoked! I can't wait to apply for the scholarship!
    I just have a few questions:

    1. Is the earliest I can apply September of this year? I want to go to college from the fall of 2011.
    2. I went to an international school in Japan my whole life due to my fathers work, and it was an IB school. All my scores are in IB format (1-7) and there is no real efficient way to convert IB scores to a GPA. It is possible, but fluky. Should I somehow mention this in the application?
    3. I actually have not taken the SATs yet. I am scheduled to take them this May. Should I take them again in June just in case I do not do too well? If I take the SATs, I don't have to take the ACT?

    Thank you!

    If you were working in the beginning of December 2009 and you are not planning to begin college until Fall 2011...isn't that more than a gap "year"?

    I believe I saw on another thread that the application is already up.

    There is a notes section on the application that you are allowed to explain parts of your application. I don't know how you would convert scores for the actual app though.
