    Hello everyone!

    I am glad I found a site like this! I would like as much feedback on my question as possible, do I have what it takes? I am currently a sophomore in high school, actively seeking acceptance into either West Point or the Naval Academy. Here we go: I currenly hold a 3.9 unweighted GPA taking advanced classes in english and math. My next two years hold challenging classes in all subjects.
    When it comes to extra curricular. I am an active member in Future Community and Career Leaders of America, I am president of a political action group in my school, and an active member in the state and national club. (seeking leadership positions in both) I am a member of my county's political group. I am class president, a member of students for a better tomorrow, student council, church youth group, concert choir, show choir, 2 time tri-state honors choir, Elected Young Ambassador of the city, coach the 8th grade traveling basketball team, For a change of heart student elected peer mentor, board member of our districts Health and Wellness Comittee, and I was accepted into my state's seminar for outstanding sophomore leaders (maximum of 1 per district)

    I am a three sport athlete: Football, Basketball, and Track
    (Freshman MVP for track)

    Additional info: I always keep a picture of my bed with me so I don't forget what it looks like.

    Wow! First of all, remember to breathe! :)

    I, too, have a DS that's a sophomore. Have been lurking/posting on here for over a year now!! Sounds like you're doing great by all the standards I've seen here, but make sure you don't burn yourself out!! I've seen it said on this forum in a whole lot of places that you don't have to be part of "everything"... but be the most you can be in whichever activites you choose for yourself. More isn't better... it's just more. Not telling you to drop activities, you know what you can handle, and with a 3.9 gpa, you're obviously doing something right!!

    This forum is AMAZING, and you'll find an abundance of information on it. Good luck!!

    How competitive is your congressional district?
