For those of you still waiting to hear and for those of you considering the process, it is clear that the awards are truly based on evaluations of the "whole person" and the Scolar Athlete Leader combination. So be sure that you give as much differentiating information as possible in the application. Don't rely on just the numbers. My daughter's grades and scores are not nearly as high as many of the other applicants, but she has set herself apart in many other unique ways. I am very happy to see that the Army process truly looks at all aspects of an applicant's history to make scholarship decisions.
The question was asking about recipient profile. Here are my daughter's stats:
A couple of AP courses
Maxed the PFA for push ups and sit-ups and missed the run max by just a few seconds
3 sport varsity athlete (softball, basketball and boys baseball team) with letters every year since 9th grade and several captain positions.
Community and church league sports
Lots of extracurricular leadership (FCA, etc)
Lots of volunteer work as camp counselor/kayak guide and veterans charities
Full time summer work as beachfront lifeguard
Took summer college course at Citadel between jr and sr year
Legislative page for 6 years
Letters of recommendation from state rep, state speaker of the house and US Senator
PADI rescue diver
FAA licensed private pilot earned at age 17
Traveled to first choice school for PMS interview (highly recommend)
So despite the fact that she is an average student and has to work very hard for her grades, the Board did see some things that overcame her less than stellar GPA and ACT score.
I was just wondering what some of the stats were for those awarded scholarships? Just to compare and see where I stand. Anything will be helpful, thank you!!!
