I am currently in AROTC at my state college applying for a 3.5-year scholarship. I'm only a freshman so I don't have a GPA yet, but I do Color Guard, Drill Team, am planning to study for and pledge to join Pershing Rifles, Intramural Soccer, and am President of my program's student board. My first APFT score in late August was around 200, but I improved by 50-60 points when I took it again yesterday. The interview is next week and my mentor is supposed to help me prepare. If anyone has advice, please let me know. I heard 3.5 may be rare right now so 3 might be more reasonable, but I'm not really sure how I stack up against everyone else competing for a scholarship, so if anyone could provide some input regarding my competitiveness, that would be great as well.
