There are a zillion of those threads, not only on ROTC, but also the SAs and DoDMERB for marijuana and alcohol. Typically those threads will die within days because it basically goes like this:
OP: I have a 4.87 cgpa, 5 APs, 1280 SAT superscore, Capt of the Basketball team, NHS member and 200 volunteer hrs. What are my chances for a 4 yr AROTC scholarship, or if on the SA side what are my appointment chances/nom.
Respondent 1: Your cgpa is going to be re-calculated because they do not use a wcpa over 4.5. Otherwise you look good.
Respondent 2: What is your major, and which ROTC. AF and NROTC want STEM/tech.
Respondent 3: What are you PFA scores? Which schools
Respondent 4: You have 0% chance if you don't apply.
Respondent 5: Nobody here knows what the candidate pool will be for this yr., thus we cannot chance you. Apply.
OP: Thanks, and responds to all of the questions.
From there it typically goes silent. The respondents replied to the OP and have moved on. No need to respond again, hence the thread now dies.
That being stated in the next few weeks until Oct or so you will constantly see the chance me threads, and on top of that you will see multiple threads of....what should I wear for the interview? When is the 1st boards? Will I meet the 1st board if I submit now? I see everyone is getting notified for scholarships, but mine hasn't changed, what does that mean? I got the scholarship, but not accepted to the school, what's next? When will I go for DoDMERB? etc etc etc.
I have been here for eons, and I can tell you impho that every kid/parent thinks their situation is unique. They are nervous, scared, not use to this rollercoaster. They look for any glimpse of hope that they can get.
