    Your resume looks competitive but we don't know what your teachers said or how your BGO interview went or if you'll get a nomination. So all anyone here can say for sure is that you have a 100% probability of not getting in if you don't apply.

    your academics beat mine dude! Your grades and test scores are very impressive. However, you have to take into consideration how you're going to interview with the BGO and congressional panel for the nomination. W/O the nomination there's no chance. The BGO interview is also a pretty important step in the process as they are basically the academy's way of getting to know you personally. So prepare well for those. I think you should be able to be competitive because of your academics and physically you're alright. Only person I've seen that's maxed the BB throw. Might want to work on your running, pushups, and situps though. Other than that, just prepare for the interviews. The congressional nomination is what kills off the most applicants.
