    Higher test scores, especially in math. Also, you should try to score high on your CFA (physical fitness test) since you are not involved in school sports and you are no longer taking Tae-kwan-do.

    Strongly recommend retaking math until you get it in the 700 range. Also strongly recommend you try the ACT; it may work better for you, and USNA will give you the benefit of your best scores on either SAT or ACT.
    Work on your physical fitness with focus on the CFA for now, but develop a regular fitness routine and keep at it. You will benefit in the long run.

    I took the ACT last week and am waiting results. I will retake both the SAT and ACT in early June.
