    Just like the title says, what are my chances of getting into USMA. I've been applying to USAFA for two years in a row and now changed courses to USMA. Just in glimpse, I have graduated from Northwestern Preparatory with 4.0 gpa, I have 27 comp score on ACT(30 math, 27 science, 26 english, 25 reading), and received 2 nominations from MOC and Senator. Im just looking to hear some feedback on your opinion of my status (good or bad).

    It is really really hard to judge your chances. There are so many other factors that we don't know about that help or hinder your chances. You could have an astounding file and not get in, or you can have an average file and get in. You never know.
    Main Variables:
    Scholastically Qualified
    Medically Qualified
    Physically Qualified
    Nomination Source

    Scholastically Qualified: includes gpa/class rank, sat/act scores, types of classes you take (AP, honors...), sports, clubs, work/volunteer, leadership, etc...
    So we can not exactly tell you based off of test scores and gpa. I am not asking that you post your full resume either. Soooo if you want an answer, here's what Collegeboard says (note: may not be up to date!):

    Collegeboard says: 14% acceptance rate

    Just out of curiosity - what made you change your mind and apply to WP after trying twice for USAFA?

    Well I was in Varsity Swimming for 3 years, Church youth group council member and band leader 4 years, DECA, FBLA, and etc. Im ranked 23 out of 243. Unweighted gpa is 3.89.

    In question of why I changed to WP, I actually never knew anything about WP until I was at interview. The board reviewed by profile and told me I should really consider WP as an option. So I did a little research and learned a lot about it. Now WP is more appealing to me than USAFA.
