    Hello forum! I am applying to West Point and am just looking for some insight on how competitive I look. I did not receive a LOE or LOA but am still remaining optimistic with how my profile looks.

    SAT
    Math:640/Reading:550
    ACT
    Math:28/Reading:26/Writing:28/Science:27/Comp:27
    Class Rank: 23/123 (competitive school)
    GPA: 3.8 unweighted
    CFA scores: 67' throw, 15 pull-ups, 8.58 shuttle, max push ups, max sit ups, 6:06 mile run

    Varsity Cross Country(1 year)- Lettered, 10th in State with team, Regional Champions, District Champions, made the All-region team.
    Varsity Soccer(3 years)-Lettered, First team All-district, Academic All-District, possibility of captaincy this year.
    Varsity Powerlifting(1 year)-Lettered
    NHS(2 years)- Officer this year
    Student body Vice President (1 year)
    FCA representative
    Student Council Executive Board Member
    FFA member- District champion in LDE competition
    I have worked for the past two years of high school, 10-20 hours during school year, 30+hours during summer.
    Approximately 162 hours of community service
    AP Calculus, AP English III, AP English IV, advanced animal science(honors), mostly honors classes throughout high school.

    Any input would be appreciated greatly. I will be qualified medically around December 12th. Again, I haven't heard anything from the admissions board and haven't been asked to be interviewed by my liaison either. I had my congressional interview last week and felt that it went really well. I should hear back from them between December 10-20th. I have a Presidential Nomination though as my father is a retired veteran who achieved the rank of CW4 after 24 years of active duty service.
    Retaking SAT/ACT in December.

    Thanks guys!

    Make sure you are signed up for the December SAT/ACT. Your scores are below average with Reading being the one you need to focus on.

    I agree with the SAT scores. The ACT scores could be adequate depending on the competitiveness in his district (assuming a congressional nomination). However, they should be raised to be truly competitive.

    CFA looks good. Athletics looks good. Could be more leadership but at least there is some. Plus you're doing this while working so that's a plus. The rest of your academics looks good, but will also depend in part on how heavy your load was compared to what was available. I think you have a shot. Competitiveness on your slate will be key.
