Hello everyone, I am a Junior in high school working on being accepted into either USAFA or AFROTC. Just one problem though... I got my SAT scores back yesterday, and they are very low. Critical Reading 530 Math 570 Writing 510 Multiple Choice 58 (score range: 20-80) Essay 4 (score range: 2-12) (I write good essays if I have time to think about them. For the SAT, you only have 20 minutes) I was in good hopes until these scores came in, now I've lost all hope for a career as an officer. My dream for the past 2 years have been to go into the Air Force to become a pilot, and I have great character, smarts, and a lot of determination. I just do not do well on tests such as the SAT, which asks me about subjects that I haven't been taught well in. I am still going to apply for a congressional nomination, but after these low grades, I feel like I am wasting my time. On the USAFA website, it talks about how they grade people based on the "whole person" concept. But does that even make up for the low grades I've received?
