Hey guys, I'm going into my senior year at a very competitive public school in PA, and am nearly done with my USNA application (USAFA and WP as well) and need a little feedbacl/advice on what to think about my chances. I'd first off like to state that I will try to keep this short and sweet. My father is a USNA grad, class of '85. Mother is AFROTC from Duke. GPA: 3.344 out of 4.0 All honors/A.P courses. Please note that my GPA was originally a 3.5 out of 4.0; however, in the fall of my junior year I was in a pretty terrible car accident. I suffered a major concussion and my grades took a hit. I was taking Honors Physics, Trig, AP History, Honors English, and Honors Chemistry while trying to recover. This is a circumstance that is noted on my transcript from my school officials. I made the choice to keep my challenging schedule, regardless of my brain injury. I am taking AP Calc 1, AP Calc 2, AP Gov'nt, AP English 1, Chemistry II, Finance, and Social Psychology my senior year. Class rank: top 36% after junior year; previous to accident was top 22.5%. Currently 107/300. SATs: 740 R, 660 M, 700 W. Taking them again in October; have been prepping, if anyone has any tips for the SAT please let me know! Shooting for 2250+. Athletics/School activity: Freshman football. Varsity football 10th, 11th, and soon in 12th grade. Probable varsity captain for 2012 season. Varsity lacrosse 9th, 10th grade. Could not compete during junior year due to injury from car accident. Freshman basketball. Avid shooter; will definetly try to get on the Combat Arms team or the High-Powered Rifle team if I go to USNA!

I did not get into NASS. I've gone to 9 sports camps at USNA and again, my father is a grad. I've gotten the chance to speak to countless USNA grads and many of my father's close friends. I have a very clear idea of what it takes and what it is all about. I have very strong reccomendations and a strong personal statement.
