My chances?

Postby ballkn143 » Wed Oct 30, 2019 1:02 pm

Hi everyone, I just wanted to see if anyone had any honest feedback about me becoming a SMART scholar.
I am currently a sophomore pursuing a B.S. in CS and want to work in Cybersecurity. Currently, I have a 3.75 GPA which will probably be around 3.5-3.7 at the end of this semester. My ACT composite was a 29. My recommendations are by a former employer at a tech firm, the dean of my school's honors college, and a CS professor. I honestly don't know how strong they are but I know it was all extremely positive. I also have not been able to do many research projects due to the lack of them at my university. No military background at all either. I just always dreamed of working Cybersecurity for the government and thought this would be an amazing opportunity.

Welcome. The Unofficial SMART Scholarship Forum is fully supported through this banner add. In the past, I have relied on this income to pay for all hosting and domain charges, but it has only covered half of my expenses in recent years. If this is the first time you are seeing a banner here, it is because an adblocker has prevented it from appearing (I don't blame you). If you have found this forum valuable, I would appreciate it if you consider supporting its upkeep.
