I posted a "chances" thread a while ago. It is here if anyone is interested in checking it out, http://www.serviceacademyforums.com/showthread.php?t=10362 I was surprised to find a poster replied saying that she believes my chances of an AROTC scholarship was 100% to any school I applied to. Exactly how competitive are the AROTC scholarships? I understand that it is far less competitive than AFROTC or NROTC, since the AF and Navy are downsizing on junior officers. However, I was talking to someone and they said that the standards for earning an AROTC scholarship was laughable. Is army not as popular a branch to go into or something? Are there any other reasons why AROTC scholarships might be easier to earn than a AFROTC or NROTC scholarship?
