    Your stats are VERY similar (almost identical) to mine. I was awarded a 4-year Army scholarship from the first board this year. I'd say all you need to worry about is the actual process now.... Get your stuff in on time and perform well at the interview and you should be a lock.

    I'd say you have a chance if you apply and complete the process.

    Your stats look good. Did you have any leadership positions? When my son was first interested in the military, he was given the advice to really step it up in academics, sports, and leadership.

    Yeah I think you probably have a good chance. Apply regardless. The application only took me like less than 2 hours plus the interview, and now the army is paying for my college tuition.
