I need help! I am done with my application for the Naval ROTC scholarship. I want this more than anything else in the entire world. I always have. My main concern is my GPA. I have a cumulative 3.1. Which I know is low, for them. My junior year really killed it. But I had my interview with my recruiting officer, which I think went very well, and he asked if anything in my past has hindered my chances. And I told him no. Then he explained they needed to know if anything truly has. So I told him last year my mom got diagnosed with cancer, my dad had open heart surgery, and my grandmother died. All last year. However, I followed up by saying that was no excuse and that my grades were my fault. (Taking responsibility for my actions). But my extra curriculars are amazing. I am vice president of JSA (which ive been in four years). I was on the regional board for JSA as well. Ive been editor of the paper for two years. Ive won a national and state award for journalism. I ran track and did basketball. I also scored a 27 composite on my ACT with a 30 on math. He translated that into mid 600's for my SAT that I take tomorrow. My officer said my rec letters were great and my essays were good. AGAIN, my main concern is that my gpa wont get me in. But I told him I have straight A's right now, so that might help. I mean, Im a girl, and my family has been in the navy, which I hope helps. Is there any way Ill get it? Any advice??
