    CLass rank is more important. If you are in the top 20%ish I don't think the Cs will kill you, assuming you have great standardized test scores. If you have Cs because your school is super competitive, admissions will take that into consideration.

    I would say in a way my class is sort of competitive because it has been getting smaller.

    My DS is worried because he has all A's with one B. I'm sure most of the other applicants are the same. If your composite ACT is less than 30 I would say you will have a tough time making the cut.

    If this is any help to you I made all As/A+s and only one A-(honors class) in high school. I have a 690 Math and 650 Reading SAT; I'm still waiting on decision from USNA.

    I think if you can get killer EC's/leadership then you could maybe get NAPS

    And the truth is, if you don't apply, you won't get in.

    Good luck!
