Hello everyone. I have been visiting this forum for about a year and a half now during my application process to the SA's, but never really needed to ask any direct questions. Now, however, I feel I had to make an account because I have some concerns regarding my application. So I received my Principal Nomination from my MOC about a week ago. (It hasn't been processed in my portal but it is official, I have the letter and spoke to my MOC on the phone). When speaking to my MOC on the phone, she sounded super confident that I would get in, she said all I need to be is qualified and I am in. I did an extensive amount of research regarding principal nominations, but I am still concerned. So, I am not 100% confident that I am fully qualified. Medically, I am. I am also pilot qualified so I am not worried about that. My CFA scores were all slightly above average, except I ran a 6:30 mile and my shuttle run was maybe a tenth or two below average. Still, nothing to really worry about, I am sure I am physically qualified. No worries there. So I have two of the three qualifications and my principal nomination...... Scholasticly qualified. I really don't know if I am and it is freaking me out. I can't stop thinking about it. My GPA in my portal is a 3.46. I took many APs and honors, so even though my GPA isn't outstanding, but I am not too concerned about it. I played two sports, have multiple varsity letters , wrote truley passionate essays, killed my interview, went to Boys State, I am in student government, I have had a committed job for over a year at a steakhouse, and I am in a few other clubs and I did my fair share of community service. I also am not worried about the character evaluation, I never have been in trouble in any way at all. Now, my SAT math is a 650, I know that's fine. My SAT writing is a 660, I know that's fine. But my Critical reading is a 570! On the site it says to be competitive you need a 580. But is that just to be competitive? I supposedly don't need to be competitive, just qualified? Plus it is a mere 10 points below. I have read that people have gotten admitted with a score with brackets in their portal (meaning non-competitive scores) It's really eating me alive. My new scores come out next week and I am hoping I scored above a 580 on critical reading, but what if I didn't.... I don't know. My stress is eating me alive, and I have never felt this way before. And I have the principal nomination. Maybe it is because my dream is dangling right in front of my face and it would be a shame if something so minor ruined it. Maybe I just think my situation is too good to be true. I just can't help overthinking every little thing. Someone please give me a piece of mind or something. I can't help thinking they are going to find something to disqualify me, I don't know what. It's a big waiting game, I know, especially since I have been deffered until regular decision ( my nomination hasn't been uploaded so they have no reason to keep evaluating me until later on, plus I am not a super competitive candidate without my principal nomination. I knew I was going to be deffered, that doesn't concern me. To my understanding they have to accept you by law with a principal nomination as long as you are 3q'ed) So I guess all there is left for me to do is pray that I scored higher on that SAT, keep my GPA up, and submit those 3 optional letter of recommendations. Sorry if I vented a little, but I feel I need someone to talk to me that knows what they are talking about. I am just really stressed about this because I want it so bad and I am painfully close.
