    Hello everyone. I would like to tell you about myself. I was born in Kazan, Russia and came to America when I was two; therefore, I became naturalized as a US citizen. My main college of choice is USMA, yet I'm thinking of considering some SMCs as backups. I'm a resident of Pennsylvania. Well I guess I will state some of my stats:

    Grade: Highschool Junior
    Weighted GPA: 96.75 (3.9)
    Unweighted GPA: 95.75 (3.85)
    Class Rank: 22/433

    National Junior Honor Society
    National Honor Society
    Gifted Program
    Academic Tutor
    Track and Field
    Leo Club
    Maybe FCCLA
    Green Club

    All Honors Classes

    Did not take SATs yet

    My goals are to do well on the SATs, gain leadership roles in Track, Leo Club Green Club, and NHS. Hopefully senior year I'll be taking all AP classes where available. Currently I'm in AP Bio and I'm taking Senior sciences and math classes.
    This link is my progress log: http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AgZumMJ4b-CxdExndzF3bWZXYktOVEZ3YW1wY1BSRVE&hl=en
    Thanks for reading!

    Welcome to the forums! So much info on here! Your stats seem good. What class are you trying for anyways? USMA is my choice too. Do all those AP classes, more EC's, do well on those SAT and ACT's and you'll do fine. Have you done your CFA yet? Welcome to the forums, and good luck on your endeavors! Get out and do some running:thumb:

    I'm going for the class of 2015. I'll go into more detail about me ECs:

    NJHS: Since 7th grade
    Ski Club: 4 years, won't do it anymore
    Gifted Program: Since 3rd grade, took iq test to get in, 130 minimum, mine's 140
    Tutor: Probably will be mostly math, did it last year will continue it
    Mock Trial: Did it for Freshmen year, not my thing
    NHS: Got into it last year, no meetings yet, will try to be an officer
    Green Club: Recycling club, will join it, will try to be an officer
    FCCLA: Leadership / Community club, might join it, but can't hold office til 12th grade
    Leo Club: Community club based on Lion's Club, will join it, will try to be an officer
    Track and Field: Done 2 years of it, not the best, might be in leadership committee this year, will be granted letter 12th grade without a doubt, I run sprints / mid

    I have not done my CFA yet and I have good reason to. I am not at the required strength level: 30 pushups, 45 situps, 4 pullups, 7:00 Mile, and don't know BB or Shuttle.
    I do have a minor routine to get stronger which I have used for a few weeks: http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AgZumMJ4b-CxdGloblNjWjVfcndzMHZOQlRpcHFUOWc&hl=en

    EC's sound really good so far. Try to start on the standardized tests soon, they superscore them. About the CFA. You have a year to work on it, so I suggest you start now. Dont aim for the scores you put, those are the bare minimums and wouldnt help your WCS if you scored that low. Atleast try for the averages if not the maxs.

    You have a year, and you'll need the whole year to get a good score, beleive me, dont wait, start now. I could do 4 push-ups 9 months ago, I can do 82 now. So train, run, and run some more:thumb:

    Oh those scores are not my aims at all, they are just my current status. I'll make a thread asking for a better work out routine.
