    So you hope to attend the Air Force academy or Naval Academy???? Your screen names makes it seem like you posted in the wrong area...:smile:

    However, physical fitness is a HUGE part of attending any academy. You need to work on that by being a consistent participant in a physically demanding sport.

    What classes are you taking? Lots of math, science, English? What is your class rank? Top 20%? What are your SATs/ACTs? 600/600 or better?

    What will your teachers say about you? Have you had to overcome any obstacles in your life?

    You need not answer these publicly. I've posted stickies on this forum about what you typically need for USNA.

    Leadership rolls are a big plus (team captain, club offficer, class officer, etc.). The more, the better. You are a junior so you may want to start leadership positions ASAP.

    Strive for leadership positions because it is something you enjoy and/or feel you can contribute to your school.....NOT because they look good on a resume.
