    I already know I need to bring up my ACT scores (which I'm working on) but is everything else at least somewhat competitive?

    I have seen candidates in with your stats getting appointments from MD. Get in touch with your FFR (If you can't get in touch with your FFR, send me a PM).

    1. As you stated, take your ACT again. West Point super scores
    2. You should be allowed to move on to the second phase of the application or about September. Try to finish your application early as possible. Simply, finishing your application early helps.
    3. Hope that your Congressional district is not competitive. The competitiveness of any Congressional district changes year to year. So this year, in one Congressional district you would have been the vacancy year.
    4. Keep up your class rank, West Point pays more attention to class rank then GPA.
    5, Check your JROTC instructor to see if he or she can nominate you to West Point.
