    I think you look pretty solid overall. Your weakest part is definentaly your math ACT but you still have a few more tests to bring that up. Just be a leader in every area possible and STAY POSITIVE! Good Luck.

    I knew I recognized your name. I saw you got a nomination from Rep Pompeo last month. Congratulations! He nominated me the last two years I applied! I agree with the above poster: Take the ACT and keep trying to get your math up!

    Otherwise, your resume looks better than mine did, but remember it is very competitive! Wishing you the best of luck. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Remember USAFA will take the best individual scores on multiple ACT SAT tests...

    So take the ACT again but only work hard on the math.

    In addition I don't see much in the way of leadership...

    I mean 'in charge of', or 'responsible for'...I see a lot of 'member of'

    Academically (minus the math score) you are roughly were I was when I applied.

    Good luck!
