    Competitive? I'd say 28+ ACT. Just look at the numbers from the 2019 Class profile (attached)

    DS received EA appointment with a 29 composite. He is a perfect testimonial for how CGA looks at the Whole Candidate......3 sports, leadership, good recs, service to the community..... It's not all about test scores.

    The waiting is killer...especially when others have already gotten appointments.

    The CGA looks for candidates from all over the US and our territories. Some geographic regions are more represented than others especially in states where there is a larger Coast Guard presence. It's always a goal to find highly qualified candidates from all regions especially those that are underrepresented.

    Base on my analysis of the last class to get in the following states have the highest number of cadets per population of kids in that age group.
    CT
    RI
    HI
    AK
    VA
    MD
    NJ

    My analysis has Illinois around 30th. Of states that at least sent at least one cadet, Michigan and Ohio bring up the rear. ND, MT and UT did not send any.

    Seems like the same seven states make up close to 50% of all appointments each year, every year - VA, CA, MD, TX, FL, CA, NY.

    Is admissions point based...like does each activity add a point and most points get an appointment
