    My application is complete and I am eagerly awaiting a decision from VMI. VMI is my first choice and I, like most applicants, am very nervous. The wait is killing me! Here are my stats:

    GPA: 3.9 (weighted)
    Class Rank: 92/591 (Top 15%)
    SAT: 1770 composite; 580 Reading, 560 Math, 630 Writing (If writing matters)

    Athletics: Football (3 varsity letters), Track (1 varsity letter), Powerlifting

    Non-Athletic Activities: Young Marines, National Honor Society, Visual Arts Scholastic Event (2x participant), Calculus Club, Student Ministry, 100+ community service hours

    Leadership Positions/Seminars: Varsity Football Captain, 2013 USMC Summer Leadership & Character Development Academy

    Awards: 2nd Team Academic All-State (2013), Academic All-District (2011 and 2013), Honorable Mention All-District (Football), Falcon Football Leadership Award

    I also visited VMI this past December and was interviewed by an Alum.

    Any feedback is appreciated! Thank you very much for taking the time to read this.

    you look like a strong candidate to me

    have you gone to Lexington or interviewed with an Alum?

    making that effort (and yes, showing you are committed enough to spend the $$$) would be important to demonstrate your desire

    good luck!

    Congratulations! You won't regret your decision! Just hang I'm there when times get tough (and they will!), and remember the outcome will be worth it all!
