    Hello,
    I applied for the class of 2019, and in April I found myself with a TWE. I want to reapply for the next class, however, I am studying away in Italy and my school does not offer any ROTC programs for the program I am participating in. Would this hinder my ability to get in for this year's application, especially since the program I'm in is part of the College of Arts and Science?

    Thank You for taking time to read this and I hope to hear from someone soon.

    Depends. What you are doing won't necessarily hurt your chances, but might make it difficult.

    It is what it is, other than bad luck, most, not all, TWE can trace back to academic standings. Doing well at your college will help, plus scoring better SAT/ACT.

    Some candidates appears to have a misperception that if they attend a college and get decent or good grades that will get them in. If so, that gives an unfair advantage to reapplicants.

    I'm currently a plebe who applied a second time. I have a friend from beast who is also a plebe after his third time applying. A number of my squad leaders during beast got in their second time. My roommate's TL got in the second time. Needless to say a lot of people who go here did not get in their first time. I would definitely encourage you to reapply if this is really where you want to be. Just reapplying and continuing to work hard this year will help show them you're dedicated to going here.
