Hello! I'm finishing up my sophomore year of high school, and I've realized that this is the path I really want to take - NROTC. What I would like to know is what can I do to improve my chances in such a competitive atmosphere? My GPA is a 3.6 unweighted, but I'm working hard to bring that up... I was a competitive gymnast for 5 years, before I switched over to springboard diving. I applied for 2011-2012 Student Gov at my school, and I volunteer at the hospital, as well. I know it's not much... But I'm trying Moving 3 times in the past few years hasn't helped either. I'm also a little worried that because my dad is a Naval officer, will more be expected of me? Will it be harder to get in? The only reason I won't be applying to USNA is that I plan to study medicine, and from what I gather, there is a very small amount of USNA graduates that are allowed to attend medical school straight away. I apologize for such a long post, and any comments at all would be appreciated. Thank you!
