    Sorry guys, you must hate these kind sof posts, but I'd greatly appreciate some feedback on my credentials.

    3.5 unweighted gpa
    3 AP classes junior year, 4 senior year
    31 Act composite
    1330 SAT score (math/eng)
    3 years of band
    1 year of njrotc
    Ranked 7 out of 843
    Officer/treasurer in my school's national honor society
    2 Varsity letters for advancing to state history fair
    Approximately 270 hours of tutoring for math student in geometry and algebra II
    I can do about 45 pushups in a min and 55 situps, not sure about the run, but i know I have a fairly decent time. I'd appreciate any input on the likelihood of me getting a scholarship, and anyway to improve!

    What you listed looks fair and perhaps even competitive, but you seem to lack sports/athletics. Some more leadership wouldn't hurt either... team captain, president, etc.

    Yeah, I'm worried about athletics. I've done marching band for 3 years which is a physical activity that took up about 15 hours a week but i dont know if it's considered athletic. As for leadership, I felt like leading students through tutoring along with helping to lead our schools NHS would be good because my school doesn't have many other opportunities.

    Well the NHS thing is good and might evenbe enough. I look at the tutoring as more of a "service" thing but perhaps you can work the leadership angle of it in your essay to help drive that aspect home.
