my pft score was 272/300</p>

<p>what are my chances of getting this scholarship?</p>

<p>You need to really bring up your test scores. ACT 30+ and SAT m/v 1300 in order to have a shot.</p>

<p>I got an NROTC scholarship with a 29 ACT. You really need to get that varsity letter in one or two sports. That's really important. In fact, varsity sports would compensate for not-so-great test scores. And make sure to really shine in those essays. They are the only thing the board sees of the real "you."</p>

<p>PM me if you have questions or need advice. :)</p>

<p>I would be surprised if you didn't get it, though. Beef up the sports activity to be sure, though.</p>

<p>Sometime in the last 5 years, I remember talking to either an ROTC or Academy rep. He said two of the things they look for are varsity letters and NHS.</p>
