    I was hoping to apply for an NROTC scholarship and I was hoping I could get some advice on my chances of getting one. I intend to major in aerospace engineering. Any feedback is good thank you.

    You said elsewhere that you are a junior in high school. This means that the only grades you are reporting are for your freshman and sophomore years. You're on your way to establishing a competitive application, but it's premature to comment on your chances. Some advice.

    1. Strive to get high grades this year
    2. Improve your SAT scores
    3. If you can move up to some elective office in Student Council that would be great.
    4. Do not post under your real name
