    I'm currently a highschool junior at a 6A highschool class size approx. 950. I have a 4.3 weighted Gpa, top 10% and am in all Ap and Gt classes. Have 2 years of language and ap comp sci. I am a cheerleader, cross country, and track and field and received varsity letters in all 3. Member of Nhs, Ncl (national charity league), student council, best buddies (help the mentally disabled), and am a member of the top honor choir. I also have a job and hold an assistant manager position and then am a treasurer for ncl and a student council representative ( represent the student class at board meetings). What areas can I improve upon to help my chances

    ACT/SAT scores. You don't mention them and the are a big deal. Otherwise your stats look pretty good. You need to continue to do your best.

    Good luck!

    plus academics.

    The West Point candidate evaluation is 60% academic, 30% leadership, and 10% physical.

    There is no extra credit, so doing more leadership activities will only have a marginal return, the max is 30%.

    Physical evaluation is based on CFA, it's more about passing that scoring high as mathematically, making 10% improvement on your academic evaluation will be increase your overall evaluation than making 10% improving on your CFA.

    From what I see what separates candidates are academics. See many candidates with similar leadership accomplishments (i.e. sports, leadership roles, and etc), but differences in class rank and SAT/ACT scores are real easy to compare.

    With scores like that and the rest of your resume', I would say the only thing you need to worry about is your CFA. Practice, practice, practice. Good luck!
