Hi all - my DS just had his ARTOC interview. Let me first say my eldest son is AROTC, so I am familiar with how things work. First off my son was told in the first 5 min. that he was not competitive bc he did not have a varsity sport. He continued on and asked "have you ever run a mile in your life". My son runs 2-3 miles every other morning. My son also has held a leadership position in a 300 member marching band for 3 years. He is in charge of the largest section of the band. He was told that was not a leadership position and meant nothing. Then he looked at my son and said "a little part of me is saying you are wasting my time!" THEN he told him to tell his parents to give up on a scholarship and that the AF and Navy won't want anything to do with him either!! Now - my son is not the king of activities, but he has done a sport every year, participated in marching band, has volunteered and is damn smart! He skipped 7th grade, goes to college half time carrying a 4.0 with over 20 college credits below his belt. He has 33 ACT, but only a 3.32gpa, because he had a bad freshman year. I am just in shock at the way he was spoken to - has anyone else had an interview like this or was this guy out of line?
