So last year I applied for the Air Force Academy class of 2017 and long story short despite getting a principal nomination from my congressman, I was not admitted due to my CR Sat score had a <> around them. After not getting in, I decided to take a 4 year Naval ROTC Scholarship to the University of Washington. Like many, it has been my dream to go to the AFA since childhood and therefore I did not give up on my dream and re applied this year for the class of 2018. At the UW this first quarter, I took calculus, naval science, English, and computer science and earned a 3.84 GPA along with getting an outstanding on my first PFA (275/300). Moreover, for winter quart, I am taking calc 2, the second quarter of computer science and naval science and for all 3 midterms I have scored a 90% or higher. Along with my grades, I am also on the Battalion Sailing team and exhibition drill team. This year I earned another principal nomination, however, I was too busy to retake my SATs until it was too late and although my scores reach the average (600 CR and 650 math) they will not be considered for my application this year. My question is does the Admissions board take consideration on how you are ACTUALLY doing in college versus your SAT/ACT scores like the naval Academy or will I still be deemed academically unqualified? In my essays this year, I emphasized my work ethic and transition into being in NROTC and college... I had my CO and several English professors give correct my essays and I thought they were very well written. On a side note, I am physically and medically qualified already. Let me know what you think!
