    Competitive College Applicant

    I know these "chances" post are annoying, but the CGA does not really posts statistics for college students that were appointed. In high school I was 6th out of 370 with all honors/AP courses, did several ECs, varsity sports throughout the fall, spring, and winter, several volunteer hours...

    Do I need to choose my top 5 schools if I'm a reapplicant?

    This fall I will be a freshmen at NC State and a reapplicant for the NROTC scholarship. On the part of the application where you pick your top 5 schools, it says all applications must have 5 choices or else it won't be reviewed. Do I need to choose 5 schools and apply to all them even though I...

    Good, bad, or neutral news?

    I was medically disqualified for hearing loss and have been pending a waiver since late December. From what I believe, correct me if I'm wrong, the Naval Academy looks at applications in slates. Does that mean they look at all applications from a specific area or city? I recently talked to my...
