I'm a freshman in highschool hoping to either go to West Point, if that fails, get an ROTC scholarship, or get some form of financial aid and go to college. My main question is, how do I become a competitive candidate? I currently have a 3.87 GPA, in college prep. classes, I'm a registered amateur boxer, once a boy scout, 4H member, and I been getting involved with ECs like wood working, and art club. It's to my understanding that you need to get into some leadership position, but I'm not sure how to do that. I'm determined this is what I want to do, and I want to get started early on it to have the best chances.
