    Hey, I am a senior in highschoool and I just recently realized the Coast Guard looks good for me and I wish to attend the academy. I was just wondering if I stand a chance of acceptence. Just tell me what you think. I have done sports all my life. I will have a varsity letter in cross country, lacrosse and ROTC radiers. I do not know my exact GPA but i know it is good and probably a little above a 4.0 and I will probably be in the top 50%. I have held a job as a paintball ref for a little while but as for leadership thats about all I got. Also, through ROTC this year I am going to do quite a bit of community work. Im getting real nervous that I am not good enough but i really dont know.....:confused:

    A generic answer is = you have a 12.5% chance of getting an appointment if you complete your application.

    Team sports, demonstrated leadership, evidence of character, high school transcript, teacher recommendations, high standardized test scores, written essay, top physical fitness - all will play a part in the Cadet Candidate Evaluation Board when they select the Class of 2016.

    Continue you current scholastic path (take the highest level math courses available and pass them), take advantage of any leadership opportunities that develop, contact the CC Coach and submit an interest form with your best times.

    Register on the www.cga.edu website, signup for a campus visitation program.

    When the application appears in September, submit it during Early Action.

    Appointments are getting extremely competitive so when it comes time to write your essays or highlight your accomplishments, this is not the time to be humble - let your light shine, and make sure the CCEB knows your desire to attend. Scheduling an Admissions Interview with your local AAP will give them another look at you, another evaluation that will help them decide your status.

    Good Luck.
