Hi, The issue that brought me to this forum is a 15 year old rising Sophomore. What I'm looking for is "lessons learned" and how to's in the process of obtaining enterance to a Service Academy. This is the direction my son has wanted for a number of years, and I don't want my lack of knowledge to impede his goal. Thank You in advance for any and all help in this matter. V.R. rmmach1 p.s He got roughed up a bit in Academics in 9th grade. He had a mixed schedule, AP's in Math, Soc Stud, and Spanish, with lighter classes such as NJROTC, weightlifting.
