If you read what some of the winners have posted they don't have all of the above, some have none of the above. If that is 100% what they require then the scholarship page should indicate it. Yes they want those who show strong leadership skills and academics but sports should not be a main factor, sadly enough most athletes get academic waivers.I won't presume to know all the facts about how a scholarship winner is chosen, and MohawkArmyROTC is certainly in a better position to know than I am... but I have to say that I personally know three 4 year winners last year who had no varsity letters or anything other than intramural sports for the athletic portion. They were very strong applicants to be sure (one went to West Point instead of via ROTC), but not in the varsity letter area. I think to say "all winners" meet that criteria is not quite accurate. Certainly "vast majority" may be true.
My daughter was offered a 4 year scholarship and she had no varsity sport experience. She was strong in the academic, leadership and PT scores which we believe overcame her lack of Varsity sport. So no....that doesn't mean you're done for!
If I recall from your prior posts, you participated in CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) basketball. If you did at least two years of this and documented it properly on your application, it might be regarded as equivalent.
There will be new applicants on the third board that have not been previously boarded. The deadline to start the application was 10 JAN. Some applicants that met that deadline did not meet the deadline for the second board. Those applicants have until 28 FEB to complete their applications in time for the third board.Also to the fellow non-selects: It is too late now to submit a scholarship for ROTC, therefore for the 3rd selection board you are not competing against any new boarded applicants
