Hello, all. I'm a high school senior and my dad mentioned the USAF ROTC as an opportunity a couple weeks ago (My dad was an officer in the U.S. Air Force in the 80s and early 90s). Anyways, I'm looking to major in meteorology or engineering at N.C. State and the ROTC looks like it could be an interesting and exciting approach to this. I have a 4.625 GPA and am ranked 19th in my class of 309 heading into my senior year. I am in the Chess Club, the Red Cross Club, the Beta Club, and the National Honors Society. I played basketball at the YMCA the last two years, but I think I may not do it this year (I sucked at it, LOL). I also have volunteered at Jericho Road Ministries in Florida for a few weeks every summer since 6th grade. I took three AP classes last year and am taking four this year. I got a 3 in AP Psychology, a 4 in AP English 11, and a 5 in AP Government. I lack on leadership positions, though, as I've yet to really achieve any sort of leadership position in a club (These always seem to go to the popular kids, anyways, so I doubt I'd have a shot if I tried). As far as being in shape, I could definitely pass the USAF fitness exam you have to pass. I'm 5-11, 170, so I would pass the BMI standards. I would probably try to get in better shape before next year, though, as I'm admittedly not in superb shape. It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to get in better shape, regardless of whether I'm going into the ROTC or not. Anyways, do you think someone like me would be able to get into the ROTC program? I haven't contacted the recruiting office yet, but I figure I had better do that soon if I'm going to do it. I hear that they're short of people these days as compared to several years ago, so I probably have a better chance at getting now than I would have 10 years ago? Thanks.
