    I’ve been reading this forum throughout my entire application process. I finally received the call that I had been selected for a MO NROTC scholarship. One of the main things that I looked for on this forum was what the past winners stats were. I’ll post mine and hopefully any other winners can post theirs as well for future applicants.

    Academics:
    1300 SAT
    3.5 gpa
    Multiple AP/honors classes
    National Honor Society

    Athletics:
    Varsity Track and Field
    Varsity soccer
    280 PFT

    Leadership:
    Eagle Scout/Senior Patrol Leader
    Track Captain
    USMC SLCDA

    Misc.
    Interview went very well
    Letter of Recommendation from Active Duty Marine Officer
    Very active with my local enlisted recruiter, which my XO knew about

    Negatives:
    Admitted Mj use 2015 but I believe they understood that I had matured since then and it was a one time thing.

    I found it really helpful to see what successful applicants looked like. If any other winners want to post their stats I’m sure it would be appreciated.

    The one thing I am seeing that is consistent is a solid PFT score by all accepted candidates.

    I was awarded the scholarship. here are my stats:
    Academics: 1540 SAT, 34 ACT, 3.84 unweighted GPA
    4 on 2 AP tests, 5 on 4 AP tests

    Athletics: 245 PFT score
    4 years varsity baseball, 3 years varsity captain
    Amazing letter of recommendation from coach

    Interview also went very well.

    In my opinion, my coach's letter of rec is what secured the scholarship for me.

    Selected first board.

    Academics:
    3.5 UW
    1210 SAT
    Math: Precalculus
    English: Honors or AP all four years

    Athletics:
    300 PFT (24 overhand pull-ups, 127 crunches, 16:17 3 mile)
    4 years XC (2 captain)
    3 years track (1 captain)
    Top varsity runner, freshman most improved

    EC’s:
    Boys State
    Debate VP
    Young Republicans President
    Summer job, work weekends
    VP of 501c3
    Roughly 300 service hours

    For the interview: It went very well. Be comfortable playing mental gymnastics; each of my responses stood firm but relatively dynamic in tone and subject matter.

    For the PFT: It’s a game of long-endured mental discomfort. I’m an athletic 135 and 5’6 on a good day. Don’t let the tall, robust Marine archetype intimidate you.

    For the EC’s: Commitment is king. Develop a general theme. I think they’d give me a different look if I bounced around with “Sailing Team Captain, “Rubik’s Cube Club VP,” and “Music for Others Co-Founder.”
