Hello everyone, im new to this forum, and honestly ive look deeply into a case i was in but i never really found information on it. So where to start. Im in highschool as a junior (17), and i have had a burning desire to become an army officer,and the best one i can possibly be. whether it would be ROTC or the academy. The problem is in freshman i screwed up badly due to personal problems that i had, while in sophmore i did recieve straight As, this year i went back to being very lazy, due to the fact that with my highschool gpa (2.5) the academies wont even bother looking at me. Realistically i wont be able to raise my gpa high enough, so i am looking towards community college and to basically take rotc there (it is possible in MDC for army). I was wondering if i 1.performed extremely well in community college (3.9 to 4.0 gpa) 2.taking pleb-related classes, 3.reccomandation from ROTC and/or congressman 4.High SAT/ACT scores 5.200+ community hours at church/library/hospital 6.i dont play varsity sports, but i do swim/play tennis very much, and am always active going to the gym becoming fit. 7. Have been in multiple clubs (FBLA, JCC, Chess ect...) Would it be possible to get admitted into the academy with this record speaking hypothetically? And would they pay attention more to your community college record (gpa ect..) or will my highschool record damage my chances? I will work hard for it because i am ambitious and very determined to get into it. and i know i wont be accepted my first time, but i plan to apply multiple times, and if i dont, i always have an ROTC scholarship as a backup plan so i can still go for my goal to becominf an army officer.
