Hi everyone, I'm just making a quick thread to see if any of you can tell me how competitive I'll be for the scholarship. My recruiter says I will be, but let's see what you guys have to say about it. Anyways here's a list of my credentials, and thanks for any input you might have. Background- white, male, 5'4", 150 GPA- 3.6 (unweighted) 4.1 (weighted) Class rank- 52 of 533 (weighted) 85 of 533 (unweighted) SAT- 1340, 1370 if composite (I read somewhere that the review board takes the highest scores from multiple tests, what I call composite score, could someone verify?) AP Test- Biology- 4 Chemistry- 4 English Language and Comp- 4 Honors classes- 6 honors classes and 3 APs (grades 9-11) Senior schedule- English 4 Physics Spanish 4 Calc AB AP Gov/Econ AP Boys golf Sports- Freshman football Freshman/JV baseball JV/Varsity Golf Extracurriculars- 3 years United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Chief Petty Officer, over 10 ribbons, attended Petty Officer Leadership Academy, staffed two recruit trainings, outstanding letter of rec from my CO Work experience 10, 11, 12 (10-19 hrs./week) helped train new employees, money handling, etc. Ran 2009 LA Marathon Applying to USNA NHS and California Scolarship Federation member Awards- USNSCC Citation (twice) Principals honor roll 2012 Sea Cadet of the Year for my region 2012 Teddy Roosevelt Youth Medal Distinguished student Scholar athlete Excellence in Chemistry Award Essays- my recruiter said my essays were some of the best he's seen, I really tried to convey that I want the scholarship so that I can serve my country and lead marines, and not simply for the monetary aspect of it Letters of Rec- one from CO of Sea Cadet unit one from English teacher (both are outstanding) PFT- 281 1st Semester Senior Grades- 3.8 unweighted, 4.2 weighted Top choice school- university of michigan(accepted) This is my dream school, and the board knows I've been accepted. What is the likelyhood that if I get the scholarship that I will get my first choice school? I know it's also based on the popularity of the unit, but does anyone know if UMich fills up quickly? Also, does the fact that its out of state a significant factor? Thank you for any input you might have.
