    Hello all!

    I'm applying to Boy's state and I'm wondering what the GPA, SAT, ACT, Extra-curriculars, etc. of those who get accepted usually are?


    For Reference:
    Right now I have a 4.37 cumulative GPA (4.00 unweighted). 3rd/423 in my class. 2130 SAT (690 Math, 700 reading, 740 writing). 30 composite ACT. Life Scout/Senior Patrol Leader in Boy Scouts, Varsity Wrestling (3 years), countless service hours (100+), church youth group leader, school club leader, school band member, and a few other leadership awards. Already got accepted to West Point's SLS.

    I thought it was done entirely on a school guidance counselor(s) nomination?

    There is no standard MO on this. There are as many modes of pursuit and selection as there are Legion posts. It's a good thing to do for those interested. Not unlike standardized tests, scouts, and sme others ...there is a certain degree of leveling or common denominatoring with Boys State and Nation opportunities.

    TBH, it depends a lot on your interview. You have to be able to present yourself well to the legionaires. If you can't present yourself well, what would make them know that you could be a good politician up at Boys State.
