    Get that GPA up and PLAY SOME SPORTS! VMI has a saying: "Every cadet an athlete, and every athlete a cadet". Sports will definitely prepare you, not only for the physical challenges of VMI, but the teamwork required in the Ratline as well. Your ACT is great, and you obviously have some awesome Civil Air Patrol experience.

    Just stay focused the rest of this year and next, and I'll see you in Lexington.
