I didn't apply for the army ROTC scholarships before the deadline, so would really love to get one next year when I start college. However, I want to make it clear that it is my dream to be a soldier so regardless if I get one or not, I am still doing ROTC. Anyways, here are my stats: incoming freshman at Dickinson college, female, 30 ACT. My APFT scores are not up to par yet but I assure you that I have been working my *** off ever since I decided I wanted to do this, so I WILL pass when I step onto campus in the fall. When I talked to a senior cadet on an admitted students day, she told me that if I can pass the APFT, I show up for all classes and PT, and the fact that I am female will make it likely that I could get a scholarship. She also said that she received one 2nd semester freshman year, but it was a 4 year retroactive scholarship. So what are some things I should know/do to increase my chances? And yes, I am FULLY aware that scholarship recipients have an obligation to the army. Thanks!
