    Hi, I am a sophomore in high school and am wondering what the odds would be of me receiving an NROTC scholarship. As of now my GPA is a 3.8 and receive grades nothing less than 90's. As I am only a sophomore right now I haven't yet taken the SAT and ACT exams but will be taking them next year as many times as possible. I also will be taking at least 2 AP classes my junior year and senior. Now as far as my extracurriculars go I am a 2 sport athlete. I have played football since freshman year and have just finished my JV years as a sophomore. Next year I am starting to play on the varsity level and for the rest of my high school career. I was also the captain of the defense since freshman year if that has any pull. During the spring I throw shotput and discus and have been on varsity since freshman year. I have held a steady job since last summer and will be working there for the rest of high school. I work every day after school. I am also a member of my local US Naval Sea Cadets division. Right now I am an E-2 but plan on making at least PO3 before I graduate. Any responses are appreciated.

    It would be in my opinion foolish to give you any odds right now for multiple reasons.
    ~ The biggest is nobody knows what your competition will look like in 2 years, nor how many scholarships will be offered by NROTC.
    ~ Intended major, your school choices, etc.
    ~ Class rank

    Now, do you look like you are on track? Yes.

    The only thing I would suggest is to take the most rigorous curriculum you can whenever you can. I am assuming you mean 2 APs each year for a total of 4. Is that the most rigorous curriculum or are your peers taking 10 while you have only 4?
