I've decided that I wanted to go to the Naval Academy in the 8th Grade. I realized that I wanted to serve my country and do something with myself. I chose the Naval Academy because I have felt a stronger pull to the Naval Academy and Annapolis because of family. I have visited the Academy and I have gone to a few Academy Days in my state. Currently, I am a Junior. I moved to a private school this year. Recently, I got a low C in BC Precalc for the 1st Quarter. I was wondering how this would affect my chances of admission. Other info about me: This is my first C in high school. My grade currently in BC Precalc is a low B. GPA is weighted at my school and BC Precalc is weighted like an AP class (15 points added). I take two other AP classes, AP Chem and AP US History. I got a B (85) in AP Chem for the 1st Quarter and an A (92) in APUSH for the 1st Quarter. My other classes were Latin 1, Theology 11, and English 11 Honors. My grades in these Honors classes for the 1st Quarter were 100, 99, and 89 respectively. I am going to see if I can enter AP English 11 as I am not being challenged enough in Honors. I can speak English, Intermediate German, Basic Latin, and I plan on learning Japanese. I play 2 varsity sports at school, Alpine Skiing and Tennis. I play paintball outside of school. I participate in my community and I play a few instruments. I have an interest in engineering and I'm in the process of building my own pulse jet engine.
