Should i still attempt to do ROTC my freshman year of college if I haven't been accepted.

Why wouldn't you? My DS started AROTC with no scholarship and by the middle of his freshman (MS-I) year had earned a 3 year campus based scholarship, later extended to 3 and a half.
But even if he didn't get the scholarship, he could have still contracted without one, receiving a stipend and still commissioning upon graduation.

The key is to get good grades, participate in AROTC activities and do well on the APFT.

Which school did your DS attend? And what did he do to get a scholarship in the middle of his freshman year
