Hello, this is my first post. I was reading some threads about EA so I would like to get everyone's opinion about it. First, I am a AS 200, and been in the program since my AS 100 year. My major is currently electrical engineering and I activated an express scholarship recently early in the Fall 2010 semester, slated to graduate in 2014 (5-years). These are my stats: -2.61 CGPA (Yeah its bad, I really did bad my 1st semester of college (2.1 GPA) but bounced back my spring semester to get the GPA required for scholarship activation. I had a mediocre Fall 2010 semester (2.8 GPA) -93.8 PFA Looking to improve to at least 95 -AAS active now the finance officer for my squadron -The cadre really resect me and know me as a good person, I have a feeling that they really like me as a cadet -The POC training officers really like me as a leader in my flight, squadron and in the detachment -Very involved with the detachment (Combat dining in!!!!) -No conditional events on my record -Did well on my AFOQT -No idea about my commander rank, I think I will be in the middle. I know these are not the greatest stats in the world, but my O-6 did tell me 70% of all EA handed out are to tech majors. I do know a couple POC last year who had GPA lower than me that received EA, and they were civil engineers. The POC at my det gave me assurance that I have a great chance to get an EA this year, but with the force shaping deal we are going through, I'm just worried about my GPA, even though it has improved every semester. Also our det has some amazing cadets, talking many people with 3.3+ GPAs and 95+ PFA scores. They are all non tech though. At mid-term counseling my O-6 told me I was in battle with 20 other cadets for EAs. We have 38 cadets in our detachment. So my question to you is, how are my EA chances?
