    Virginia is difficult

    From what I read, Virginia is a tough place to get a nomination. Your grades and extracurriculars are outstanding. Take the ACT to see if you score higher than the SAT.

    Keep retaking the SAT as well as taking the ACT. I took the SAT 3 times and the ACT twice and got better scores every time.

    Keep retaking the SAT and focus on getting that math above 600. Everything else looks great. :thumb:

    Get the math Sat score up to around a 650 and you should be safe ( of course try to get the best score possible) I had a 590 on my math and got appointed (class of 2014, still not a cadet yet), but I also scored a 700 on the verbal portion. Other than that, as long as you have a good interview and continue with a good record your resume seems fairly solid. This isn't any guarantee you will get in though, it depends on your competition and about a billion other factors.

    id say you have to get the SAT into 600's and 700's, especially since your from the south which is really competitive cause so many apply from there. maybe try the ACTs.
