    The University of North Georgia says that 11,000 apply and 5,000 are given out; of those 5000 about half are 4 year

    I think that number is a bit high.

    Last year roughly 2300 scholarships were awarded, I doubt very much that the number doubled this year give the current budget issues and Army drawdown.

    Oh that's right! Only 5000 of the 11,000 initial applicants completed all parts of the application, and half of them were awarded scholarships!

    yesterday when flipping through AR 145-1, and CCR 145-1, I ran across the ratio of 3yr AD vs. 4 Yr. It was 33% 4 Yr., and 67% 3Yr AD. Don't know if that is accurate, or even applicable to this past award season.

    Both the total number of awarded scholarships, and the mix b/w 3 yrAD and 4 yr. will change every single year.

    The presenter at DS's senior awards night tonight announced that 2,004 four-year AROTC scholarships were awarded this year.

    I have a feeling he misquoted those numbers.

    2,004 scholarships total sounds like it might be a bit closer.

    I agree, my bet is 2004 were awarded scholarships. (3 and 4 yr)

    I have to say those numbers/chances are much better than AFROTC. AFROTC gives out @900 scholarships out of the 5K completed, boarded candidates.

    I'm trying to remember where I saw it but I think the estimated AROTC scholarships to be awarded for 2014 is 1800. I will try to track down that source.

    Check with the computer hacker department of the Chinese Army. They're the only ones with the exact numbers.

    Number of applicants (minus nurses) - 8454 (I'm assuming that was eligible)
    Number of national winners - 2461

    Don't have the 4/3 year breakdown.

    Now what???

    Back to reading CCR 145-1

    A cold rainy boring day in Southern Canada (I mean Potsdam, NY), so I did a little excel magic and came up with some more numbers for all of you analytical wizards.

    I am seeing that CCIMS lists 9752 applicants.
    They record their status as either ineligible, interviewee, eligible, offer, or alt offer. My assumption is eligible and interviewee are pretty much the same. Those are the applicants that completed the online app to the point where they received instructions to proceed to interview/PFT/transcripts/test grades. This does not mean they completed the process and were board ready. Unfortunately I can't see that. Obviously the ineligibles didn't meet one of the basic criteria (920 SAT, 2.5 gpa, etc.). Offers and alt offers do not tell us whether they are 4 or 3 year. I don't have any insight into the ratio.
    Here's what I got when I pulled the list into a spreadsheet and sorted
    ineligibles - 681
    eligible - 24
    interviewee - 6365
    offer - 1817
    alt offer - 865

    Those numbers appear to line up with the numbers from my previous post if you add in the nurse numbers.

    Anybody going to change their plans based on these numbers???

    I would hope that prospective cadets wouldn't walk away because of the numbers. Perhaps adjust their school selections to accommodate the increasing competitiveness of the awards (add more safety schools and fewer reach schools from their college application list).

    The "real" numbers do serve to reinforce that this is a selective honor if nothing else. Thank you for providing.

    Hope you didn't get hammered by that recent blizzard too badly.

    2461 awards, doesn't seem to have dropped much from previous years, not like I thought it might.

    I guess to me, these numbers would seem encouraging to new applicants.
