I (a Junior in HS) just started filling out my AROTC application (I am not set on army, but it appeals to me the most at this point) and I received an email today from one of the colleges I put down on the list. Essentially, it said that unless I max out the SAL portion of the interview, I shouldn't bother applying. The reason I don't max it out is because, while I will be participating in club sports this fall (which earns 20 of the 40 points for the "Athletics" category), I do not compete in regional sports or have a letter on a Varsity teams. I fare pretty well on the rest of the application: I have a 1520 SAT, a 4.0 GPA, can max (or come very close to maxing) the PFA, and earn full points on the Scholar and Leader portions (once I include clubs/teams from senior year). I am in all honors courses and I exercise daily. Doing the math, this makes up for the 20 points lost due to the lack of a Varsity letter. I do, however, plan on wrestiling (which is only a club sport). I was wondering if anyone could give any insight into whether I have a chance at the scholarship and, if not, is there anything I can do to increase my chances of obtaining my scholarship. I plan to do ROTC regardless of whether I earn a scholarship, Please tell me what you think.
