If you dont get a scholarship, remember if your plan B or C has any type on ROTC unit, you can try to get a multi year scholarship once in college or after the 1st semester. At my unit, we had several that got picked up after the first semester and several that awaiting for the side along. If you dont selected for a scholarship, remember, it is not the end as there are other opportunities out here. As long as you know that you put your best foot forward, that is all that matters. At this stage, the best thing is have multiple options available. There are literally other avenues available to you if you dont make it this time. At this stage, perseverance is the name of the game. good luck to you and I hope you get your end goal!
Last year, around this time, both my brother and I ( twins ) got TWE from USNA. Yes, it sucked as we both had better, scores, GPA, national awards and class rank than others that got in from our local area. To be honest, for us, neither of us has any regrets, we are both studying over the summer for NUPOC questions and more that comes a long with that process. I will say that when we see USNA crew at nationals, Ill be pulling just bit deeper to win-go bulldogs!
