    Hello everyone,

    My name is Sarah Goodman, I am a current Junior in high school and hoping to attend USMA at West Point for the class of 15. I just found out about this website yesterday, at the Academy Day in CT that I went to (it was a great, really informative experience that any prospective future service academy cadet should attend!). And well, my current resume goes as follows:

    Cross Country Captain/Varsity
    Softball JV
    Newspaper Editor in Chief
    Literary Magazine
    Beta Club
    National Honours Society
    Model UN
    6 Years of Marching Band
    GPA: 3.7
    PSAT: 85th percentile, I believe, I can't remember the exact. But I plan on taking ACT/SAT this year... and doing much better.
    50+ hours volunteering at the hospital
    Soup Kitchen Volunteer
    EMT/MRT Volunteer
    Tae Kwon Do Black Belt
    Soccer Travel/Rec 9 years
    Freshman English Award
    CAPT Math (303/400), Science (336/400), Reading across the disciplines (338/400), Writing across the disciplines (377/400) ADVANCED (Level 5)
    Scholar Athlete
    Part Time Job


    I plan on attending the American Leagion Auxillary Girl's State this year...

    Is there anything else I should add to my resume? (Besides my SAT/ACT) or does it look pretty decent?

    Welcome to the forums! Your record looks pretty good. Try for some more community stuff. Other than that, you look pretty solid. That being said, always try and add new stuff to your record, for that can only increase your competitiveness. Hope that helps.

    Thank you. Great that you said that, I just joined up to another community service club at school. Of course not just for the record, I actually enjoy the activities we do such as a town cider press, and volunteering at the senior centre. :) I see you are prospective 14, hopefully maybe we'll see eachother at the academy in the future!

    Thanks. maybe we will see each other at the academy someday, that would be cool. I see some of these other people here, and I find myself kind of inferior to their accomplishments. So if I dont make it this year, 2015 will be a much better try in terms of competitiveness. Hows your CFA score? Always get started on that early.
