Hello everyone! Thank you all for your help throughout the past year--I've truly learned a lot since I began this journey. A little about me: I am currently taking my second-year in community college. I applied to the USAFA last year, but was not offered an appointment since I was late in the year for nominations and only was able to apply for the VP nom. On the bright side, my ALO said that I had a very impressive resume and would have had a good shot if I had started in time to apply for some nominations. I got an early start this year and have applied for my local congressional nom, as well as both senators and the VP again. Here are some major components of my resume: SAT: 2010 ACT: 31 High school: 4.0 weighted gpa ranked 22/~450 4 APs, 4 Honors courses President of Engineering/Robotics Club President of Interact Club Men's varsity Water Polo Captain - MVP and all-league 2nd team Varsity Swim Team College: 3.92 gpa English, Philosophy, Economics, Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, C++ programming, Engineering, and a few more electives. Men's Swim Team - MVP Men's Water Polo - MVP, Captain, All-conference First Team Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society EC's: I went to Russia last summer with four other graduates from my high school Interact Club as student representatives on behalf of our local Rotary Club. We fundraised for about a year to pay for this trip and spoke before a couple rotary clubs in Russia, along with meeting with the students and helping them start a community service club. I also taught English at a camp there. I have an engineering internship for a fuel cell company that manufactures mobile fuel cells for the military and for other civilian uses. I've been a lifeguard for about 3 years. and I have probably 1000+ hours of misc. community service --Sorry for such a long post!-- Anyways, I would just like to find out if I'm on the right track since last year (I am doing everything I can to make sure my application is even stronger). Also, I have a concern with my current semester in college: due to budget cuts, there was a limited availability of classes and because of the available times, I was only able to enroll in Chemistry and Calculus this semester. I will do the best I can to finish with straight A's, but if I end up with two B's or even one B, will that be detrimental to my application? It would mean that this semester I could have a GPA of 3.0 or 3.5, which I believe would look bad...BUT I'm hoping that all of my other efforts will bolster my application, along with a solid CFA score. What do you think? Thank you in advance for your replies!
