    I know my GPA isn't the best but, alot has happened, and I have had to come through adversity time, and time again. It would mean the world for me to get in.

    Here are some stats
    The one other thing you can tell admissions is how much you want to go to Norwich

    I replied to you in my Rook Arrival day post

    I would say you have a pretty good chance. I recommend 4 things though, Take the SAT (mulitple times, 3 times for your best score), visiting the campus (they love that), do an overnight (they also LOVE that), and APPLY EARLY.

    Keep in contact with the school during the process, make sure they have everything
    I talked to my guidance counsler there something like every other week and he called me HIMSELF to tell me I got in, before my letter came notifying me of my acceptence.

    Norwich is a great school, best of luck to you :thumb:

    Applying Online before September 1st makes the application free! (This brought a smile to my money-tight self).


    How do you have 5 years of JROTC?

    Then say 5 semesters. Or 2.5 years. Don't tell them you have 5 years, no matter what your school calls it.

    Hopefully Norwich doesn't read these boards or your chances may start dropping.

    Sadly, I wasn't trying to be funny. Frankie gave you good advice, your comment back made no sense, his answer had nothing to do with lying, it did have to do with how to properly list your activities. Whether you choose to take that advise will go a long way towards getting an acceptance. I can Guarantee you one thing, those that get accepted...."Aint never told no lie", and if they did, they didn't stay there long.
