I want to get this clarified for me and other Juniors browsing these forums. When is the time to start applications for all 5 service academies including all ROTC scholarships? Should the process be at the end of your Junior year when you have all necessary transcripts and recommendations? Turn in everything mostly at once (Some teachers won't give recommendations before end of the year) or Should the process start right now? Start on all scholarships and update as you get things? Please and thank you! I want to start on all the applications and essays and everything but I don't have my SAT scores or my transcript yet. I just took the SAT and scores wont be out till May 29th I think.
