I do not want to be too open, but I will say as much to frame my situation. My parents did not grow up in America and they cannot see a woman serving her country in any way. If they found out, I can honestly and purely say I do not know what will happen to me. For this reason, even though this has been in my sight since sophomore year, I have not made any contact with this forum, a recruiter, or representative. Since I turn 18 in 3 months, I believe I can bury this email till then. I have been accepted into UCONN and plan on attending. Because I have known I want to do ROTC for years, I have been looking into the AFROTC at UCONN. My biggest question is: What would be the recommended course of action be from here? From my research, I am aware that I can start off as a non-contracted cadet. If I were to get in contact with the UCONN detachment now and express my interest for the program and a scholarship, how would the process go from there? Would I register now at the end of my senior year and starts a few weeks before college actually starts. My biggest question is how would I secure a scholarship and how should I approach this task? How early could I get a scholarship in college?I am aware that there is a recommendation required and that it depends on availability. Does anyone know how competitive it is at UCONN. As of now in highschool I have a 2290 SAT and 4.66 W (3.8UW). Would this count for a getting a scholarship in college, if not, what is the basis of qualification in freshman year.?
