So I’m a high school senior applying to Purdue Early Action for Professional Flight in fall 2021. If anyone has an idea, do I have any chance of getting into the university for the flight program? Ik it’s pretty competitive, but I would think I have some possibility. Here are my stats/ECs:
Unweighted GPA (out of 4): 3.98
Weighted GPA (out of 5): 4.16
AP Human Geography: 5
AP World Hist: 4
AP Calc AB: 5
AP Eng Composition: 5
Currently taking AP US Gov/Politics, AP Macro, and AP Calc BC
-Currently 50-hr student pilot with scholarship to get Private Pilot License in summer 2021 (it was a USAF scholarship for 200 selects out of 2700 international applicants)
-I’m the group commander of my AFJROTC cadet group (CA-20144)
-Letter of Recommendation from a Purdue alum/retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel (my former jrotc instructor) and another letter from my flight instructor (retired Air Force Master Sergeant)
Common App Essay was going to be about how I demonstrated resilience in my flight training and how my failures help me contribute in solving the worldwide pilot shortage (I tried to show some of my character with the resilience part of the essay).
*I’m thinking the Air Force scholarship would give me an advantage, but idk.
Would appreciate the feedback
