    Will you be a recruited athlete? That can help A LOT. Consider taking an SAT/ACT prep course. They may be a couple hundred bucks but 4 years of free college will make that seem like a dorp in the bucket

    Yes, like Morgan suggested, perhaps you should invest in a SAT prep course (may I suggest Academic Approach?)

    And you mean JROTC, right?


    Best of luck... I am a candidate for 2016 as well ;)

    Take the SAT course, and if that's impossible, get the book and go through it dedicatedly on your own. Just so you are aware, most colleges do not take writing scores into account, although I am sure they still see them (this stinks for me, because writing is my best, and math needs a little work yet). The academies always want good math scores, so try to get that up to at least 650.
