    Does ROTC release statistics similar to service academies that reflect leadership, academic standing and physical fitness/athletics?

    This thread might be helpful for the upcoming pool of applicants. I believe, from my brief education on this forum, that your selection of a major and a school also directly impact your chances for a ROTC scholarship, yet future candidates might realize areas of strengths and weakness they can address.

    Thanks!

    To my knowledge they are not released. However, as many Academy applicants also apply to ROTC (in all services) I expect you would find that the stats for ROTC scholarships of all kinds are not too far removed from what academy attendees have... and those are published. I know for NROTC sideload scholarships the stats are actually a bit higher than what you see for Naval Academy applicants but don't know if this is true for high school scholarships or other services.

    If your asking about AROTC, just read through the last few pages of "AROTC Scholarship January Board" There are a few people woh received scholarships that have listed their stats.

    The last profile of AROTC scholarship winners that I've found is about three years old.

    http://www.army.mil/article/43561/

    Scores have probably increased since then. No doubt the Army does not want to embarrass the smaller services.

    Here's a random article about a typical AROTC cadet.

    I was impressed until I read he had only authored one book.
