I am going to be a rising freshmen at NC State this school year. My senior year of high school I applied for the USNA and a NROTC scholarship, but unfortunately I was rejected from both. I was in several clubs, did sports all year round, volunteered countless hours and finished 6th in my class out of 370. My weakest point were my test scores and my CFA scores as I only had a 1250 2 Part on the old sat and a 26 on the ACT. I'm good at running but when it comes to upper body and core, I lack the Stength. I was fortunate to be accepted into NC State's school of engineering with computer engineering intent. I've applied for the NROTC College Program and still await acceptance into that. If I get accepted, what should I do to improve my chances of getting a 3 Year scholarship. Do a lot of reapplicants recieved 3 year scholarship? I will be taking hard classes due to my major and will finish calc 2 by the end of freshmen year. I retook the SAT in June and get the results sometime back in July. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
