    I know there are probably far to many of these kind of threads, but I would appreciate some realistic opinions on my chances before I make certain plans regarding my future. Thanks.

    I am a second quarter freshman at a decent public university in Ohio with 15 credits earned last quarter and currently taking 14 credits.

    GPA: 3.3 College
    2.9 High School
    ACT: 29

    A handful of extracurriculars in high school but no real leadership positions.

    I know that the admissions website says that applicants should have at least 24 credit hours (on semesters), and that they consider those with less on a case by case basis. Do you think it would be a problem for me to be accepted with less or will I have to wait until I have earned more to be accepted?

    Citadel isn't exactly a hard place to be accepted to.

    Have a look at this:

    page 12, which shows the transfer numbers. About 60% of the transfer applicants were accepted. Minimum of 2.0 GPA which is, frankly, awful. Most people probably had a higher GPA than that in actuality, but I can't say for sure. If you're not involved in anything at your college, start now. You have a fairly good shot of getting in by the numbers alone.

    Getting into The Citadel is considerably more difficult for out-of-state applicants than it is for South Carolina applicants.

    If you haven't spoken with someone from the admissions office, I suggest that you do so as soon as possible. You will still have to go through the entire knob year, so you have time to acquire more credits where you are now. Your college GPA to this point and your ACT score are good, so that works in your favor.
