I'm a junior in high school and I'm going through the process of applying for an AROTC scholarship. I've filled out the online application and I was wondering how worried I should be about getting a scholarship. My academics are very good, I scored a 2250 on my SAT's and I have a very good GPA. My athletics are sub-par, I have only participated in JV track and a rec basketball league, but my PT scores will most likely be good. Lastly, I believe my leadership is solid. I'm a member of the national honors society, I'm a cabinet member on a school club, and I'm a leader in my orchestra and church youth group. My 7 schools (in order) are Duke, University of Southern California, Vanderbilt, UMichigan, William and Mary, Georgetown, and George Washington. Secondly, I am interested to know what exactly my course of action should be from this point on. Should I submit my application now, or should I wait until the beginning of September when my PT scores will be significantly better? Is there any downside to submitting my application on September 1st rather than now? I've met with the recruiting officer at Duke and scored a 180 on my interview, and I plan on speaking to the PMS's at the other schools I'm applying to. I know I've asked a lot of questions, but an answer to any of them would be greatly appreciated.
