AFROTC Application Help

I have submitted my AFROTC application around October now and the only thing on my checklist is the SAT/ACT score. I have taken these tests multiple times so I can reach the minimum requirements but have not been able to surpass it. Since I wasn't able to surpass it, on my application it states, "The SAT and/or ACT score(s) provided thus far are below the minimum requirements". My question is, what should I do next if I'm unable to reach the minimum requirements?

Thank you

Unfortunately, if you don't meet the minimums in any of the categories (SAT/ACT scores included), you won't be considered for a high school scholarship. We had a cadet take the ACT multiple times in order to finally qualify for an in-college scholarship. So, as it stands now, you won't be getting a scholarship out of high school. You can still join AFROTC at a university and participate fully, but in order to qualify for an in-college scholarship, you will need to improve your scores.

If I were to partake in AFROTC at one of the colleges I got accepted to, what is the likelihood of receiving a scholarship in the first year?

No one can really give the answer to that. All I can give you is how to improve your chances, First, get those scores up to the minimum. There is a 0% chance of receiving a scholarship until that happens. Majoring in an Air Force ROTC approved STEM major helps too, but only if you can handle the coursework. Get good grades. The best you possibly can. Get 100 on the fitness assessment, or as close as you can to it. Get involved with activities around the detachment (color guard, drill team, Arnold Air Society, etc). You don't need to do everything, but pick a few things you like. Finally, get along with your classmates. If you do all those other things but don't get along with your class, you're in for a rough time.
