    Hi, I was wondering at the very beginning of the year (im a freshman), I was caught cheating on a quiz. It was stupid and definently was not a good choice. I pled guilty and have had no problems since then. Also as an 8th grader, I got OSS for 5 days along with 70 others for a food fight.:frown:
    Other than that I have around a 3.4 wieghted gpa. I play football and lacrosse, I play an instrument, I plan on joining NHS, and I go to a Catholic School which usually graduates at least 1 person to the academy each year. I take above my grade level math and science and am planning to attend the academy's STEM program. I also take hnors classes and am signed up for AP classes. Does USNA even check middle school? Does the honor code volation really hurt? What would help my chances? Thank You.

    First of all, can you get into NHS? At my school, if you've been caught cheating, you're disqualified from joining NHS.

    I don't think 8th grade matters would affect you, but what's OSS? To be honest a weighted GPA that is still 3.4 is still.. pretty low, I'm sorry but at least you have some time to bring it up!

    As long as you can prove that you're currently in good moral standing, far past mistakes shouldn't haunt you now. That's just my oppinion.
