    What are my chances of receiving a AROTC scholarship?

    I think you're looking pretty good, but never take anything for granted! I got all the way down to a plan D before I received my scholarship.

    What are my chances of receiving a AROTC scholarship?

    I did not play sports after sophomore year but still received 4-year as an engineering major at a private school. What is your class size?

I will be reapplying this year, however, I am not sure who I am supposed to get a LOR from, college professors or...

    Reapplying... worth it?

    Hey guys, this is my first time posting on the USMA thread, but have found it real helpful. I was planning on attending USNA for a long time because I wanted to be a Marine. However, I wrote the Army off. I'm not sure why, honestly. But as soon as I looked into the Army I got more excited than...

    AROTC Transfers

    Surprised nobody has posted about this yet, so here I go. CC has extended the transfer request deadline to May 4th, it was previously April 15th. I put my request in before April 1st, and now will most likely have to wait til June to hear back. Would CC know earlier whether they will have spots...
