    Civil Air Patrol helped me alot with my application before I was QNS.

    Keep excelling in academics, leadership, and athletics. Knock the SATs out of the park, participate in varsity athletics, etc.

    Be sure and read all of the stickies at the top of the USMA section. There is a lot of useful information there. :thumb:

    Keep in mind that West Point will require a recommendation specifically from a math teacher, English teacher, and a chemistry or physics teacher. These are completed online.

    Aim for varsity and a varsity letter.

    If you are a Scout, complete your Eagle.

    Take AP classes when possible.

    Continue to seek positions of leadership.

    Try to attend Boys' State.
