Hello, I'm applying to West Point this year and had a few questions on some worries I've been having. I would appreciate any advice/words of wisdom you have to offer! Will a good SAT make up for a low class rank? My class rank is low; I'm in the top 30% of my class of 500 kids. However, I'm in a very competitive school and take tough classes; I'll have 11 AP's and one Dual Enrollment by graduation. I'm wondering if my above average SAT score will help put me back on track academically. I scored a 2060 on the SAT this June (CR: 710 M: 680 W: 670), will this be enough to offset my class rank? Also, is it worth mentioning in my application that the school I attend is very competitive? Is two Varsity Letters enough? I'm by no means a star athlete, and it seems like everyone who applies to the academy is. I've done 4 years of Cross Country, a year of Wrestling, and a year of Track. I managed to get my first varsity letter last year for Track, and I'm confident that I'll be lettering in all three sports this year. However, only my letter from Track and Cross Country this season will be on my application, is two enough to be competitive physically? Leadership, do I need more to set myself apart? I want to stick out in leadership; it's too late to boost my academics so I need to be as good as possible in this section. I plan on leaning pretty heavily on my experience in scouting. Is what I'm doing now enough to set me apart, or should I explore more leadership opportunities? I don't want to further stretch my time, but if it gives me a better shot at WP I'd be happy to take it. My "credentials" so far include: Eagle Scout, former Senior Patrol Leader and current Junior ASM for Scout Troop, Cross Country team captain, student body secretary, VP of Model UN club, secretary of orchestra club, National Honor Society member, and I've MC'ed a flag retirement ceremony and a couple other ceremonies. I also volunteer actively, and have about 200 hours documented. Is this enough to make me a "stand-out" in leadership? Thank you very much for your help!
