I recently had a great opportunity to talk with a competitive applicant and I am fearing for my upcoming application. They say that I need numerous awards in sports at the county and state level (which is nigh impossible for a varsity-since-freshman swimmer like myself). Furthermore, they say that I need a minimum of 500+ service hours during high school. I will most likely finish with around 320 hours. Can any current cadets, FFR's, or anyone with experience chime in?
