I am a high school senior who has recently discovered the AROTC path via a friend. The university that I have been accepted into has a strong AROTC program, and I am interested in participating in the ROTC and applying for a scholarship. Admittedly, I am late to the game. I'm furiously trying to gather more information so that I can make an informed decision. No one in my family has been in the military and my high school does not have a JROTC program, so I am learning where I can. I am meeting with the LTC over the ROTC program at my choice school later this week. I have a list of questions for him, but would love guidance from all of you who have been through this process. What would you ask?? Further, I question if my high school resume would be competitive enough for a scholarship. 3.8 wgpa, 27 ACT, total dual enrolled senior (will have 30 hours at the end of this year upon high school graduation), 3 yr varsity swimmer (regional champion, state finalist), 2 yr swim captain, 2 years club swim, Governor's Honors State Finalist, Drama One Act state champion, working 20+ hrs a week since the end of sophomore year. I opted to do dual enrollment rather than a heavy course load of AP, although I did take several AP classes. To be honest, high school has not been ideal and although I am an outgoing person, I avoided any club involvement. My leadership has been limited to an officer in Drama club and club participation in HOSA. I am not the typical candidate that is on this type of forum as I am not the epitome of a super high school student. I know that I haven't hit my peak yet, and am believing that the AROTC will provide a path for that to happen. I am seeking out a program that will provide discipline, comradarie, leadership development and the structure that I will thrive under. But am I too late? Thanks again for any input.
