    Hello,
    I am currently a freshman in college after not receiving an appointment last spring. I am studying mechanical engineering, and just recently got a 4.0 while taking Chemistry, Calculus, Freshman English, and Intro to Engineering. I was a 2 sport varsity athlete in high school, varsity baseball captain, National Honors Society Member, Key Club member with 200+ volunteer hours, #9 in graduating class of 250. I scored a 700 on Math and 620 on Reading SAT. On the CFA, I ran a 6:35 mile, 18 pullups, 68 push ups, 75 sit ups, 8.24 shuttle run, 90 foot throw. Medically qualified with a senatorial nomination. Wondering what my chances may be? Thanks for any info or help!

    Depends on the competition on your slate but I would say that in general your stats look impressive to me. The one thing that did jump out was I would have expected you to list 5 courses for your freshman year but perhaps Intro to Engineering is a 4 hour course? I'm sure Chem is.

    Where is your BFE?! Your package seems to be very strong, perhaps the run could have been a bit quicker(not a game changer by any means), may I ask what district of Maine you are in? I would figure 1st but I feel like 2nd would hold little competition. Usually having Calculus and higher level science helps and you obviously have above average test scores. I have no idea how ME MOC's have filled their slate regarding USNA.

    I am also a reapplicant, applying from a military college.

    I have an 800 R and 690 M SAT, 3.85 GPA while taking:

    Composition, Advanced Multivariable Calculus, Chinese History, Chem, Chem Lab, and Information Systems. I was a 3-sport varsity athlete in HS and my dad is a USNA grad. I also played college football last semester. I have 1 nomination and have not received an appointment yet.

    My CFA is as follows:

    max pullups, max pushups, max situps, 6:00 1 mi, and 9 sec shuttle.

    I have not received an appointment yet either!

    Futuremid, I hope you get a BFE this year. Thanks for sharing your stats. It is good for all of us reading the forum to see how competitive some districts can be.
