    During my junior year of high school I was dual-enrolled at a university and took Calculus as well as Probability & Statistics, which are the highest-level math courses I could take as a high school student. Since I can't take anymore math classes senior year, would this hurt my chances? Should I explain my situation to USNA?

    Can you continue to take the next level of calculus at a local college? It's often difficult to jump back into higher level math classes if you've not studied any math for a year.

    If that's not a possibility (I know some schools with dual enrollment only allow classes up to a certain level for dual credit) then maybe you can be a peer facilitator or tutor in the highest level of math offered at your school. This would keep your math skills sharpened and show some leadership.

    Perhaps you should go back and study more algebra, geometry and trig and retake the SAT for more competitive scores. Also, try the ACT, you may do better on that test. Unless you are a poor test taker, your class schedule (up through Calc & Stats) and class rank don't jive with your math SAT score.

    @COmom Unfortunately I can only take up to Calc and Prob & Stats but I will try to sign up for a TA position!

    @falconchic88 Thank you for your advice! I didn't even think of that. My Calculus teacher is looking for a TA this year so I will definitely sign up.

    @ca2midwestmom I am currently studying for the SAT and that wasn't my question but thank you!
