Hello, I'm a junior in a private school down in south Florida. I just want to describe myself as best as possible so perhaps someone can tell me whether or not they think i'm a strong candidate for a NROTC (MO) scholarship. OK so basically i have about a 3.9 G.P.A. on a 4.0 scale. I am ranked 101 out of 265 11th graders. Currently I am taking all Honor classes and on Dual Enrollment and one A.P. I have been an honor roll student all 3 years at my school and always strive for excellence. My SAT scores are as follows READING: 480, MATH: 600 WRITING: 550 ESSAY: 9 ... My ACT composite is a 21, (I’m retaking both within this month). I am also a U.S. Sea Cadet and played Varsity Lacrosse all 3 years (also will 12th grade) i played 2 years of J.V. football as well. I was just accepted into Florida’s BOYS STATE leadership program this summer and taking my fourth summer school course (not needed summer school but i heard it helps to take summer school) My whole life i wanted to be an officer either NAVY or MARINE option. I find myself to have the utmost respect for both however there’s something about the Marines that make me want to be one. I am in average shape i can run a mile in about 8 minutes and about 40 pushups in under a minute and about 3 pull-ups. I’m working on running faster and doing more pull-ups. I know i need to start filling out an application very soon and just want to have people state their opinions about my situation. I realize this is just a forum and not the actually admissions board, but many on this website are or know someone who’s gotten a ROTC scholarship. The colleges that really caught my eye were OLE MISS, VIRGINIA TECH, AUBURN, and UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO. I know I must be admitted into the school first but from your opinions, does it look like I am a strong candidate? I would really appreciate your honest response and look forward to it. THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS!
