    Hi all,
    For the last few weeks I have been uneasy. My heart has been racing with anticipation and anxiety. The reason for this is i was told I didn't not receive an AROTC scholarship from the 1st board. My portal also never changed.

    However, yesterday my parents were called by the nearest pms, who told them that I received a 4 year scholarship to my top 3 school choices. They said I was not notified, because of a mistake in the system. Within 1 hour my portal changed from boarded to winner.
    If you didn't get a scholarship don't lose hope. There are more boards coming up too.

    Stats were:
    1320 sat (math 670/CR 650)
    3.0 UWCGPA
    Class rank was some where around 298/450 give or take 5 in either direction
    top 3 schools:
    University of AK Fairbanks
    University of North GA
    University of AK Anchorage
