    Good extracurriculars, good sports involvement, some nice leadership rolls. I would work on the SAT score a bit, and don't be afraid of the ACT as well. Not bad though.

    Min, I understand that. It's all part of the process. I remember the butterflies and every day hoping and fearing that the mail would be there with something for me. Good luck!!! :thumb:

    admission chances

    am i on the right track for admission to USCGA

    i play football, I'm a junior firefighter, and a member of students against destructive decisions club at my high school. I know that as a freshmen i was ranked in the top 5 of my class. I have not been able to figure out my gpa because of the odd quality points system my school uses. I have made high honors every semester so far in high school.

    i think maybe another extra sport may help my chances?
    i would like to involve myself in another club or organization do you have any suggestions?
    also do you think getting a c in an an academic class would severely hurt my chances of admission?

    Getting a C wouldn't help. Try to vary some things you do to "out of school" activities. Toss in some leadership positions.


    I don't recommend doing things just to add to your resume (although, I basically did that with life guarding). Do what you will enjoy.

    You've got plenty of time to build a HS resume though.

    1. Become the captain of the football team.
    2. Become the captain of the junior firefighters.
    3. Become the president of the destructive decisions club at your high school.

    Demonstrated leadership in a few sports or clubs is much better than membership in many.

    :cool:
