Sigh, the site keeps disconnecting me when I try to post and I end up losing everything I've typed, waste of the last two hours... was going to cut and paste for safety but selected Submit out of a rashness to get it done with I had typed up a different reply but since it keeps disconnecting me I'm just going to copy the one I've got from the other site. Hope you guys n gals can help, all information is much appreciated "Hello all, I've been reading posts here for a little while and had a question about applying from college. I've already been talking with a BGO but would like to hear/read some other opinions =O. I was mainly wondering, what kind of grades, SAT scores, and extracurriculars did you have to receive an appointment from college? My GPA is a bit low at the moment at 3.3, but by the time I'm ready to apply it should be in the 3.7-3.85 range. My BGO has told me that I need to "ACE" the SAT and completely "WOW" them. But "ACE" and "WOW" could mean anything like 2100/2400 or 2400/2400 so I was a bit curious as to what others had on their applications. He also suggested that I apply every year even though I am pretty sure I would not be found academically qualified for atleast another year or two. If things go according to plan I would like to attend the USNA in Summer of 2010, so would start my application process in late 2008/early 2009. I could attend Summer of 2009 also but that would be a stretch in my mind. I have no problem with the nominations as I have the Presidential nom. due to my dad's service. Sports wise I won't have an issue either, though my BGO didn't mention what looked good on my application when it came to leadership qualities. Just that I needed to do well with my English, Calculus, Chemistry, and Physics courses. I'm slightly curious if he just forgot to mention it in the emails/phone conversations or if it isn't that big of a thing for college applicants? Any information regarding this process is welcome, and thanks in advance. =]" I went into much more detail earlier but since my efforts have been thwarted and I don't have the time to type a third one, I hope this is enough lol.
