Hello all! I am very new to this process, so forgive my ignorance. But I have a son who is interested in applying for AROTC. I have researched a lot of the threads in this forum, and have learned much more than I did by reviewing the goarmy site. So, thanks to all of you who continue to provide such thorough responses to everyone's questions. For now, I have a question in regard to my son's work experience and how it is weighted in the application process. I understand his GPA and Test Scores are very important, as are Varsity sports. He has a decent GPA and decent ACT scores...and has been a two sport Varsity athlete from 9th thru 11th grade, going to State Finals in Track for two years, and an All Conference running back in 11th grade for football. He also has been one of the captains the past two years in football. But he has also had a job where he has been working nearly 20 hours per week for the past year. I see on the application it is asked about, but I don't really know if this will help him much, as it does take away from some other volunteer or club opportunities, which may help him more to have. Does anyone know how strongly the amount of time one puts in at an actual job, while in high school, helps in this application process?
