    This may be too specific of a question, but does anyone actually know the weight of individual parts of the application? I know that academics is 60%, Extracurricular and Leadership are 30%, and Selection is 10%. But how much is GPA weighted compared to how much SAT/ACT and Class Rank are weighted? Thanks

    GPA depends on school... A straight A average at a school that is unchallenging isn't necessarily better than a B student at the hardest school taking the most advanced classes...


    So, it depends.

    SAT/ACT are standard across the nation...GPA and class rank aren't.

    As far as I know the formula for admission is kept from the general public.

    Whew. That's the million-dollar question. It would be nice if we could break it down like that. I know that my C4C's gpa was not as high as some of his fellow cadets' gpa. So what did my son have that made him desirable to the AFA? Who knows. I personally think the interviews went a long way to get my son a spot in the Class of 2017.
