    Does your weighted GPA have to be over 4.0 to be looked at? Also what are good SAT scores to get?

    Go take a look at the USNA class profiles for the most recent years to get a sense of what you need to score and what you need to be doing. I think just googling USNA class profile will get you there.

    Many of your questions can be answered through a simple search of these forums or by browsing through USNA's admission's website.

    Unless I'm mistaken, I don't think USNA takes your weighted GPA into account. And to be competitive, you're going to want to have SAT scores at 1350+ (M+CR)

    Unweighted GPA is usually what is looked at. GPAs will be recalculated based on school profile. This is common for most universities.

    700 each section. The higher, the better. Might sound like a bit up there, but make that your goal.

    Work hard in high school; the work you do now will only open more doors, no matter where you end up.

    I would add that Class Rank and Test Scores are probably as, if not more, important than GPA - weighted or un-weighted.

    Make the application. Stats are a double edge sword. Obviously you have to meet a certain minimum. If you don't apply they can never say yes. Go look at the SAT stats on the Class Profile for previous class (2016). It will give you an idea of where you fall in comparison to the entire class. Remember, competition at a minimum is local level (congressional district).
