I know that these threads are super common and aren't the most exciting but I have seen some people get good feedback on what areas need improvement. I included literally everything I could possibly think of putting on an application so if anything doesn't seem like it should be on here let me know. I just didn't want to forget anything or leave something out that might make my application stand out a little more. Sorry in advance about all the text and explanations regarding a lot of stuff on here. Senior in high school (Class of 2018) 3.5 unweighted GPA 1340 new SAT (Taking it again Saturday with essay this time) Class rank 106/405 Completed multiple honors classes. Currently enrolled in Honors, Dual Enrollment and AP courses. I need only 3 more credits to graduate with an advanced studies diploma all of which I will be taking the classes for this school year. Technology Student Association chapter Treasurer (15-16) and chapter Vice president (16-17). Competed at regional and state level both years and plan compete to this year. I was in marching band my freshman and sophomore year. I don't know if it is worth including because I did not hold any leadership positions. I have done JROTC since sophomore year and have held multiple different positions within my school's program. This school year I will be a company commander all year round. On Sept. 29th I will be getting promoted to the rank of c/CPT and will also be receiving lots of other awards (Mostly from JCLC Eagle because that was a summer camp for JROTC). This will be my first year on the raider team and I will be going out for armed exhibition, step team and drill team this year. There is a whole bunch of other stuff related to JROTC that I have yet to add to my application because I need to get the list of awards and ribbons I have earned so I can include them (Mostly things like parades, teams, hiking and various camps). Run concession stand during JV and Varsity football games. I am currently employed at Burger King and regularly babysit children under 10 years old for 10+ hours at a time. AFPT (not my official scores but these are the results from the last time I did the MAFPT) 1 min pushups 74 1 min sit ups 68 The MAFPT is only a 1 mile run but the AFPT requires a 2 mile run. My 1 mile time is a pretty slow 7:30~ so my 2 mile time is likely to be a bit over double that time. I've never had any disciplinary issues since 7th grade when I got detention for being late to a class multiple days in a row. I also have no criminal record. My essays are all still in progress (I am having family members who are much better writers than I help me put my thoughts into words.) and my 3rd essay will be almost entirely about my involvement in JROTC as just talking about what jobs I've held and what I have done doesn't nearly give the amount of work I have put into that program justice. I'm not sure about how I might do on the interview if/when that time comes so I am going to make it a point to practice interviews in the time leading up to that. Tommorow (actually today because it's past midnight and I can't sleep) morning I am going up to George Mason University with my grandparents to speak with one of the ROTC people and ask a few other questions.
