    I'm currently a sophomore in high school. I'm in Marine Corps JROTC and participate in varsity track, drill team, and color guard. Recently I have been working my tail off in school for grades, but I'm not sure if I'm up to par. I slacked off my freshman year and had a GPA of 3.67 and started to pick it up around my second semester of my sophomore year, and it looks like I'll end up with a 3.83 at best. From what I understand, the admissions process begins at the beginning of your junior year, but I don't think that leaves me with enough time to pull up my GPA. I'm going to try really hard during my junior and senior year, but I don't know if that will be reflected. Can anyone clarify this for me or offer me some advice?

    Admissions will be looking at the trend of your grades during your high school years - initially through your junior year, but the WISE candidate will ensure that the first semester senior year grades are submitted as soon as they are available. Keep working on your grades and ensure that along the way you take AP courses if available in Chemistry with Lab, Physics, Calculus, and Grammar and Composition. Best wishes to you.

    If you improve your grades, then that would be seen as a plus....don't worry about past grades, but just try to improve them starting now. Besides, 3.83 is a good GPA. Don't forget also to look for leadership positions in your activities.

    I am also a soph, and and need to work in this latter as well...good luck to you.
