    Im just starting as a junior in high school, and after looking at SUNY Maritime, i believe that is really where i want to go. I'm asking for both how i look to getting in to the college, and how i look for a Navy ROTC Scholarship


    GPA - 3.45

    Doing Junior Navy ROTC (transferred high schools to do it) for the next two years. Will be doing orienteering team, and possibly markesmenship.

    Played soccer for about 5 years outside of school, if that matters

    Will have over 200 hours of community service by the time i start applications

    On debate team

    Taking a rigerous course schedule this coming year, having two sciences and two maths, along with AP history and honors english.


    Obviously i know that my SAT scores are a big part of it, but i have not taken them yet. If some of you could give your opinion of how i look for both SUNY Maritime and a NROTC scholarship, i would be grateful.

    For me, I got the scholarship starting letter because I did well on one of my AP exams. You have to take into factor the Physical Test as well for the ROTC scholarship. Sign up for the Oct SAT or something close ASAP, you will start receiving college offers. I also suggest doing a High School sport as well. I started worrying about college to late, and I'm in a hurry to get everything in order for Early Decision :/

    Your GPA looks good - however - be sure to take the most challenging courses you can - and get the best grades you can in those courses.

    The better the grades you get - in the toughest courses - will make you the strongest candidate possible for both college admissions and scholarship consideration.

    I wish you well through this process!

    Honestly,
    This school is NOT that selective. I'm a freshman here and there are kids who I'm surprised graduated high school. It's a pretty tightly-knit community here and you know everybody. Don't stress. Focus more on getting the scholarship if you're trying to do NROTC.
