    Academic
    Freshman year I had a 4.1 weighted gpa with all A's and three honors class (English 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry).
    Sophomore year I had a 4.2 weighted gpa with all A's and one B, I had three honors classes (English 2, Pre-cal/trig, and Chemistry). I had one AP class which is AP bio and the only class I got a B in. However I think I got a 4 or 5 on the AP test.
    My Class rank is 3 out of 55 so top 10%
    As a Junior I am taking three AP's (English lang. and comp., Calculus AB, and Chemistry) I am also taking honors physics.

    Extra Curricular's
    I have over 175 hours of community service in the past two years.
    I do sailing, flying
    Freshman year I was Secretary on NJHS and Sophomore year I was in NHS.
    I do NJROTC and am a platoon leader.
    I did Varsity Cross Country, and Track both years (lettering in both sports, both years)
    I did JV football Freshman year and was captain of the team.

    Awards
    I have recieved the Raford Star, which is the highest award my school gives.
    I have been on Headmasters List all year for both years.
    I was awarded the Distinguished Cadet award Freshman Year.
    I got Honorable mention in the All-County cross country team.
    I got most improved Award in both Cross Country and Track.


    I know that I haven't taken the SAT yet but assuming I do a good job on that, what do you think my chances of getting in are?

    You are doing all the right things. A lot will depend on if you are in a competitive district, but, of the things you can control, the biggest variable is the SAT/ACT. The Naval Academy "super scores" -- they'll accept your highest SAT/ACT score from all your tries -- so you should take a test prep course this summer (or buy a book if the price of a test prep course is too much) and start signing up for and taking the SATs and ACTs as many times as you can. Good luck.

    Everything you're doing sounds great. I'd suggest making your phone calls and start getting to know your MOC's nomination representative and board. Seeing what past candidates they nominated and what their backgrounds are might help.

    Get to some summer seminars Junior/Senior summer. It helps.
