    Can't speak to BB throw or Shuttle but your other CFA scores look pretty good to me. Keep improving. The rest looks strong but more leadership roles will always help. Academics look good but SAT/ACT scores will be big so prepare. Try both and plan on doing them multiple times. You look like you have the potential to be a strong candidate to me. Girl's State will help. My son always wanted to attend Girl's State! :rolleyes:

    Good Luck! :thumb:

    Work on the CFA! Strive for the maximums, not the averages. You have a long time to prepare for it, so get to it now! Apply for SLE when the applications come out. Your GPA looks solid, as well as your courses taken. In regards to the SAT/ACT take them as soon as possible. You will be able to gauge where you are and whether or not you need to improve. Leadership potential looks good: Girls State, Captain Position and involvement in student government are all positives. Try to get recruited in one of those sports; being a recruited athlete helps with admissions. Hope this helps!

    Here are the CFA Standards:
