With my current credentials, I realistically know I cannot be accepted into West Point. However, I was wondering if I could go to a college around me and transfer into West Point, implying that I keep my grades high enough etc. I would attend University of Fairbanks Alaska and either spend one or two years there then apply to West Point. Should I spend one or two years there( at UAF)? Current credentials: Senior in highschool 3.38 Gpa weighted, I plan on improving to a 3.5 after this year 2 years Jv football 1 year variety 2 years Jv wrestling, 2 yars varsity and I am currently captain of the team this year. Less than 20hours of community Service documented. 4 years in JROTC program and I currently hold a NCO staff position First time taking SAT score was 1490- reading 470 math 550 reading 470 Did not get to take the Dec 1st SAT due to a transaction issue but I am planning on taking it Jan26 and I know I will do better on it. I am also planning on applying for an Arotc scholarship this year. My plan: Attend UAF and obtain the highest GPA I can muster( 3.7+?) Get 100+ community service hours. I plan on majoring in electical engineering. Take classes similiar to the West Point for curriculum like Calculus etc. Any other ideas that would boost my chances of Getty accepted into West Point? I will also stay in tip top shape. I also know that credits from other colleges do not transfer into West Point.
