I read that one of the requirements of getting into West Point is to take one year of US History. Well I took it last year in eight grade and I think I got a B or a C in it. Does that count or do I have to take it again in High School? I hope not, because I'm not sure my school offers it. And another question: Is 9th grade too early to start preparing? I've got good grades and I'm planning to apply to all the SA's but West Point is the one I want to get into the most. Am I starting too early or not early enough?
