I applied for NROTC at Georgetown, Miami University (in Ohio), Cal Maritime, Northwestern, and U of Tampa - in that order. However, I only have a 3.3 GPA (at a top 100 HS in the nation, and I currently have a 4.0 for the semester while taking an honors physics course (6th science course), Statistics (my 4th year of math)) and a 29 ACT composite, 33 Reading, 29 Science, 31 English, and 25 Math. My extracurriculars include starting Varsity Softball at my high school since frosh year, volunteer at youth softball clinics, volunteer as a U12 softball coach, volunteer as a U10 soccer coach, I ran Cross Country this year, I started my own video production company, am webmaster of a travel softball team, am President of Ski Club (which I founded), attended a Jewish Teen Leadership conference in DC, and am part of a 2 year program that teaches Jewish teens how to advocate for Israel. Also, I applied Tier 2 Economics, but also applied for the LREC program, with fluent Hebrew under my belt. How do my chances look for a scholarship? And for the LREC program (my first choice)? I'm kinda freaking out here, especially with all of the talk about "flaws" with the NROTC board and lack of available funding... If I don't get a scholarship this year, I will probably apply again next year, as it will be really difficult to pay for my schools without the scholarship (but if my only option is going with no scholarship, I will take out loans and follow my dreams of becoming a Naval officer, scholarship or not).
