Hello, I'm currently a high school junior looking to get an ROTC scholarship for either The Citadel or Norwich. ROTC isn't something I want to do for the money, I want to make the army my career and this is what I believe is the best way to go about it. Plus, my parents want me to get a college education instead of just enlisting. Currently I have a 3.2 GPA, but this year I'm getting mostly A's and 1 B I've been in all honors classes through my three years except for math. My guidance counselor said my GPA would go up and not to worry. I have 7 varsity letters and was just named as a soccer captain for the fall season at my school, I will also probably be getting track captainship for both outdoor and indoor seasons. I did two years of Krav Maga. I have 56 hours of community service and I work all summer long at this camp. The work at the camp is extremely physical and there are no days off for 10 weeks. I'm a link leader, which is an upperclassmen who introduces and leads incoming freshmen into the school year. I was also picked as a member of game change, this program that focuses on spreading awareness for anti-violence. Only 30 kids out of the entire school were picked, including myself. I haven't taken the SAT's or ACT's yet, but I'm signed up to. What do my admissions chances look like for both schools and getting an ROTC scholarship?
