    Which branch of the military? What is your intended major? Your ACT is a little low otherwise it looks good.

    I had the same gpa and ACT score but did not get the scholarship. I would recommend trying to boost the ACT a couple points although there’s still a fair chance even with that score. You have a lot more leadership aspects then I had as well as a great PT score. And like Sargon said, it also depends on what branch. I applied to Army. Things are weighed slightly differently between branches.

    But also, do you think I'm fine for the 2 year Early Commissioning Program Scholarship?

    Get everything done early. The Army is not as concerned about your intended major as the other branches. Your PT scores are pretty good but your sit ups are a little low, plenty of time to fix that. Make sure you watch a video because the way you're supposed to do the PT is very hard, but it looks like you have a good start. I'd take the SAT as well. Some people say the ACT is easier but I think it depends on the person. Also look at colleges that you want to go to. You'll have to pick at least one in your state and several have to be state schools. If you need any advice on what colleges are a good fit message me. I would also look to see what colleges will pay room and board if you get a scholarship, it will save you a lot of money. Have you thought of any SMC?

    I have thought, but I don't think I want to pay 50k a year to get smoked lol. I've been thinking about Junior military colleges though. Easier to get in, cheaper, higher chance to get early commissioning program scholarship.

    A JMC is not a picnic by the lake, not as intense as a SMC but not a traditional college.
