    I am junior in HS and am applying to USMA for the class of 2017. I feel like my grades and test scores will be above the average of many class profiles so I'm not too concerned about that portion of my application. However I am not sure if my EC's will cut it. Please let me know your thoughts on these:

    Junior Deacon in my church
    3 domestic missions trips
    Team leader on a 10 day Mission trip to Haiti in June of this year
    Church Youth group leader
    Worker in the church food pantry
    Team leader for the 30 hour famine through my church
    Work every summer 7am to 4 pm as full time caregiver for two children ages 9 and 11 for the past two years
    With money earned I financially support a child in Haiti for all of his needs
    Varsity wrestler
    Varsity spring track
    Varsity cross country
    Volunteer assistant HEAD youth wrestling coach (90-100 hours per year)
    Volunteer assistant youth football coach (100 to 110 hours per year)

    My school does not offer JROTC and the nearest one is too far away to join.
    I never got into scouting either.


    Thank you so much in advance for any feedback and or advice.

    Start pestering your guidance counselor about Boys' State; get your name out there.
