Hello, I have a question for any of you that may know a bit about the acceptance process. I have a 3.6 gpa and i had a bit of a hard time when i first moved to my residential high school. We had to apply similarly to attend this school, at which we are taught college classes. The goal of this is for many of us who attend the school to place out of many classes or even a whole year of college. The way we do this is by condensing a whole year of study into 11 weeks. We complete 3 of these "trimesters" a normal school year. First question, how will this effect how they look at my gpa. If it is lower then that of someone who went to a normal high school but im taking the classes I am would i have been better off just staying at my high school and getting a 4.0? My second question is how they look at the ACT. Is it something the acceptance committee looks at in high regard? I currently am a junior with a 32, but I am hoping i can bump that up to a 34 or higher. For my last question. The school I attend, as you can imagine, attracts many individuals with great expectations. I love this aspect of my school because I continually compete with these over achievers in class and out on the field. However it has come to my attention that Boys state only accepts one male and female applicant from a school. This will not deter me by any means from applying for it, but to be frank I would be exceedingly lucky to get the appointment. How will this look when it comes time to apply? Sorry if I asked a bit much, I am getting quite anxious is all. West Point has been my dream from a very young age. The start of my class application draws near and I pray I will be one of the few privileged to attend. Thank you for your time.
