    I have two questions. First, do SAT subject tests even matter for admission or are they only looked at to see if you should be placed in advanced classes upon being accepted. Second, would 55 feet suffice for the basketball throw. I've been working on it and it seems as if mine won't go much farther. Will an average cfa score affect chances for a potential loa? Or will grades, class rank, act scores, and leadership attributes make up for that. By the way I'll ask one more question, what all needs to be sent to west point before they can decide whether to give someone a loa?

    SAT subject test are not considered. It is awful early in the year to say you can't throw anyfurther than 55'. My son was stuck at about 60' and knew it was technique. We videoed him so he could actually see what he was doing. In about 2-3 weeks he increased his distance to 83'. You are competing against the best so make sure you give your best.

    You've probably seen this, but here it is:

    Also, what made an ENORMOUS difference for me was actually realizing I THOUGHT I was throwing the BB @ 45 degrees, but I was actually throwing at around 30 degrees. When it felt I was throwing at 45, it was 30. So... try aiming above what you think is 45 degrees. See how that goes.

    Sorry, can't answer the other questions. I know WP used to only need the Standardized Test scores and transcripts to send out an academic LOA... but I think that might have changed this time around.
