I just want to start off by saying, I'm new to this forum, so I'm not sure if I'm accidentally posting to the wrong category and messing up a thousand years worth of tradition or something. Anyways, I'm currently a sophomore at the end of his year who just started caring about performance in highschool and his resulting future. In the recent months I've had profound obsession over going to service academy, and specifically USAFA where I want to train to become a pilot.....but my grades,and extracurriculars aren't so good 3.48 Unweighted 3.9 Weighted SAT grade- Just took a practice one, I think I did good on it. I'm a lead varsity debater on my team, in which we participate in national tournaments. I've done cross country and track. I am a participant in Model UN and Robotics. Besides that, I have no outstanding quality that could redeem my grades or apparent vapidity. My main questions are focused on ec's - How do I better distinguish myself through my extracurriculars? What clubs/programs can I join? What can I do in the summer(two months of doing nothing usually)? PS- No JROTC programs at my school Thanks everyone.
