    I am currently a Junior in high school and I am considering applying for Army ROTC or NROTC. What are my chances of getting a scholarship for either. I currently have a 3.7 GPA (weighted). I am top 20% in my class. I have taken and passed 1 AP class as a sophomore and am currently taking 3 more. By the end of my senior year I will have taken probably 7-9 AP Classes. I have not taken the ACT yet but I have taken practice ones and am projected for a 27-28ish. I have been a member of my school's Student Council (Government) for about 7 years. I am a part of National Honors Society and my city's Youth Action Committee. I am also a member of other clubs exclusive to my school (Be Nice and Students Against Destructive Decisions) as well as volunteer numerous hours at my church and youth group. As far as athletics I have been part of the football and baseball throughout high school and just received my first Varsity letter. I should have no problem with the physical strength test. If there's anything else you need to know just ask, I wasn't sure what all I needed to put. Thanks in advance

    No one here can give you an exact answer but I will speak on AROTC. AROTC looks for scholar/athlete/leader, your gpa looks good but AROTC looks at unweighted only. I didn't see anything regarding SATs I would look into that. Try to get as many varsity letters as possibly it helps. Try to get in leadership positions in those clubs/sports teams. I would also do some research regarding plan B if you don't end up getting a scholarship. Good luck!

    Thank you, I meant to put that 3.7 gpa as a unweighted not weighted.

    One more suggestion. Find out if your school sends anyone to Boys State. If you can attend that the summer after your junior year it is an excellent leadership experience and could help. Take the SAT and ACT and see which one you do better on. Great that you are planning and preparing now. You can also start training for the fitness test. Good luck!

    That's funny you should say that about Boys State. I was actually planning on going to it this summer. I am going to take both the ACT and SAT soon. As well as I workout everyday. Thanks for the advice!
