    Hmmm I seem to have a slight problem lol..... I just took a look at my transcripts and saw that my GPA is a 3.4..... all AP classes so thats ok...however my class rank is..... well quite ugly 20/24 ( yeah small school). The thing is I go to a VERY hard school. See our school only offers AP classes. How do I get around the class rank problem?

    Thanks,
    Kevster

    kevster,

    Dont be that worried, something must of been good for you to receive a pres nom. I also believe that West Point looks takes in to factor what kind of classes you take, whether they're easy or difficult.

    His class rank has no bearing on whether or not he gets a presidential nomination. For that, all he had to do (basically) was be born to someone who served in the military for at least eight years (with some other exceptions, such as a parent killed while in the service, etc).

    I'm sure WP will take into account how difficult your school is. I know for AFA, they have guidance list some of the top schools that previous students were admitted to. From what you've said here, it sounds like your school is top-notch and I'll assume that your classmates are probably all going to prestigious schools. Just make sure that your leadership and athletics are good, too.
