I look forward to using the skills that I have acquired from my background and experiences to serve my country as a United States Marine Officer.
I applied for and received the scholarship back in 2008.
-) Besides what is asked in the question, is there anything that they are looking for to stand out?
-) What did you put in the essay that you regretted? I think it's pretty bad that you're fishing for other points to add or the "right" things to say in your essay.
Did a year of college with it and well here I am now.
I can help you out on what they want to see in your essays and what you can expect from the process if you have any questions. The enlisted man is the backbone of the Marine Corps and "becoming more" really belittles people who went enlisted. You need to show your humility and understand you are only as good as the people you lead.
All feedback would be appreciated and if this is not the correct subreddit for this I will take it down. Again it should be reflective of you and if you can't come up with a good enough response yourself then frankly I don't think you deserve my salute.03Badger, thank you for your response.
I wanted to see if there where any points that I had not considered that would strengthen my essay.
Mentally, I would be obtaining the knowledge necessary to succeed in the Marine Corps by applying what I learn while attending summer training assignments, as well as the naval science classes each semester, in my Military Occupational Specialty, and as a civilian by earning a degree in political science. My background and experiences have helped form the individual that I am today, a person that strives to become a Marine Officer.
At first, I just wanted to be an enlisted Marine, but then I got the opportunity to apply for this scholarship. How might your background and experiences enhance the U. I am certain that my rearing as a child and the skills that I have acquired in my life will enable me to greatly enhance the United States Marine Corps.
