My son is currently applying for an AROTC Scholarship. As a home schooler in a state without equal access, it is often a struggle to find opportunities to lead and serve. As a result, we feel that his resume is lacking compared to his public school counterparts. Do the boards look at quality of accomplishments (swim team captain, shift leader at work, volunteer at Veteran's Museum, junior coach) versus an endless list of (sometimes) resume fillers? To further boost his chances, he included all in-state schools (except Clemson) where he'd already been accepted and received full tuition scholarships based on his ACT (30). He has a 4.09 cgpa. His top four schools are Univ of Alabama, Auburn, Univ of South Alabama and Clemson. Major is nursing. One final word, his PMS interview was great. We traveled down to Tuscaloosa, and he met with the colonel who home schools his own kids.
