Hello, I am going to be a senior starting this year, and have planned on joining the army since I was very little. The time has now come to start applying, but I have a few questions first: 1. How Competetive is my Application? I have a 3.53 overall GPA with 2 AP classes and 1 honors. My ACT score was 26, but I am retaking it this September and will most likely at the very least get a 27. My extracurriculars are Debate, DECA, Future Business Leaders of America, Student Council, Boys State, Coaching a Little League Team, and I played football my freshmen year (although I did play football since I was 7 years old.) I can also get 4 glowing reccommendations, 2 from AP teachers. 2. Is the writing portion of the ACT required? 3. And lastly, I noticed in the online application FBLA and Deca were not listed as options. Is there a way to get those on my Application? Thank you for your help.
