Wow! I am so pleased to have found this forum. I am realizing we have gone into this process a little blind. My senior DD, has been dreaming of being a Nurse in the Navy for the last two years. Having no military backround in our family this process is very foreign to us. She is very determined. After looking at other people's stats on these forums, I am pretty confident that she will not be chosen for one of the only 30 scholarships for Nurses. We had NO idea there were so few. While she is a good student, she works VERY hard for her grades. She currently has a 3.79 GPA in a small private high school that has a reputation for being challenging. Her classes consist of honors and AP sciences, and english, with a few STEM classes. Her achilles heal, is math. She only scored a composite score of 26 on ACT, math being the culprit. She only was able to get an 18 on the math portion which does not meet the minimum requirement. Her grades in math (she is currently in pre-calc) have always been no lower than a B. She does have a history of testing poorly on standardized tests. She is Captain of Cross Country, Captain of Swimming, she is running the Air Force Marathon, was a YMCA Junior Leadership participant in our city, and is a Executive Board member of the Horizons in Medicine club in her school. Along with being members of other clubs in her school, she also has several hours of documented community service hours. So....what are her options? The local recruiter has not been much help. They of course wanted her to enlist, and worry about college later. That is not the path she is interested in. She very much wants a career in the Navy and would like to be a nurse. A few weeks ago, she wouldn't even talk about AF or Army. Now she is willing to think about AF. Thank you in advance for any advice you might offer.
