    You don't use the username "fartman38". That is the critical first step.

    Prep over the summer to retake the SAT the first time it's offered in the fall.
    Top 25% is nice but you should really focus on grades to show an upward trend. If you can crack the top 20% it would be helpful.
    Aim to be a co-captain of the volleyball team if at all possible.
    Get your ROTC application completed as soon as possible. You may be able to get started on the medical exam sooner.

    Question: Have you already taken AP Psych and English or are they planned for next year?

    Good luck.
