    Hello, I am a high school senior and I applied to USNA. There is nothing more I want then to get accepted into USNA. I was wondering if someone or a few individuals could tell me my chances based upon my application.
    Academics: 4.0 GPA, distinguished honor roll student, top ten in my class, my senior year of classes go as follows: AP Biology, calculus honors, organic chemistry honors, economics honors, problems of democracy honors, English 12, foods and nutrition I and II, and team sports as my gym. I also have three years of Spanish.

    Sports: football ((9,10,11,12) captain my senior year, four year varsity letter award winner). swimming ((9, 10, 11, 12) captain my junior and senior year, four year varsity award winner, district medalist. I am a state qualifier, state medalist, and national qualifier for both my junior and senior years) track and field ((10,11,12) three year varsity award winner, captain my senior year, district qualifier) baseball ((9) junior varsity)

    Extracurricular activities:
    class president (9,10)
    Future business leader of America club member(9,10,11,12)
    Future business leader of America secretary (11)
    Future business leader of America president (12)
    Junior honor society member (10)
    National honor society member (11,12)
    National honor society Vice President (11,12)

    Lifetime student council member (11,12)
    Principal's Student Advisory Board Member (10,11,12)
    School Newspaper(9)

    SATs: math- 590 verbal-590 I know these aren't that great but I took them five times.

    Based on that information how strong do you feel my application is? Do I have a shot?

    Your GPA and varsity sports are excellent. Clubs look great.Your SAT's are low.600 in both would make you more competitive.Have you been in touch with any sports coach's?

    Good stuff except for the act scores. Take it as a good sign that you dont have a TWE yet. Lots gone out.

    No but I would like to either swim or play water polo for the academy. Should I email the coaches?

    As noted, while you're still in the hunt having no TWE, your standardized scores are some 85 or 90 points below the average appointee over the past 5 years.

    What is status of your NROTC?

    SATs could well be an issue. However, you could be a good candidate for NAPS/Foundation.

    Other factors are your class rank and your teacher recs.

    No one here can tell you . . . you'll know by April 15.
