    I am an enlisted airman starting an online application to the academy, and obviously the education center is closed at this time or I would direct this question to them. If I do not know my high school gpa and class rank exactly, can I guess it (and maybe subtract a point from my guess just in case) and change it when I do have that information, or do I need to put in the exact number and should hold off when I get it. Replies are much appreciated, thank you.

    You can guess. However, I would suggest being precise as possible and putting forth excellence in all you do (similar to BMT). Also, you will have to have your school upload a transcript.

    Yes, I have already requested one, just wanted to know if I could guess for now until I know for sure, and then change it

    You can change the information until the counsellors open the application as a candidate. Which, if you are starting now, you should have a long time until they even review the application.

    No, You need a year ToS to apply for ROTC, and I do not meet that requirement
