    Hello, I have just recieved my nomination for the USMA! I am very excited! I am wondering what my chances may be for an appointment or an offer to the prep school. I am battalion commander student body prez, went to boys state, five varsity letters, countless work and volunteer service hours etc. I am only really concerned about the academic aspect. Rank:40 out of 140 (top 30%) GPA 3.6 (4.0) AP score of four on APUSH test. ACT: 30 eng 22 math 28 sci and reading. SAT: 690 Critical reading 510 Math. Any ideas? Plus any tips for the CFA? I run reguraly and am the captain of raider team, so that keeps me in shape. I am retesting both tests very soon. Thank you!

    Depends on you competition, but your math scores are going to hurt you. Unless you are URM, recruited athlete, or soldier,very low chance for the prep school.

    I have also been nominated for the USMMA. What kind of math ACT and SAT should I aim for?

    MATH

    USMMA has minimums for SAT/ACT scores. I believe the min. for math on the ACT is 24 and 560 for SAT. Hope this helps.

    Plan B

    That math score is a punch in the gut for ya. You ran out of time for the Class of 2017 to bring it up. I would seriously start looking at a prep school to bring up the SAT/ ACT scores for next years application.
