Please don't sugar coat it. I was sent here by a 2017 hopeful who said you guys were very helpful. I'm currently a High School Junior. My GPA is decent I suppose at 3.5(standard 4pt scale) and my PSAT score was 1810(kinda low for me). I'm taking the ACT in April and expect around a 30. I'm in Varsity choir, but unfortunately I have no athletics or community service. I just started taking Krav Maga outside of school and I'm applying to a local Teen Court volunteer program where you sentence your law-breaking peers to community service time in a real court environment. I'm planning on taking wrestling next year so I have something to show the academy, although I doubt I'll make Varsity. My class rank is 151 out of 446, which concerns me because it places me about 40 places from top 25%. I emailed my liaison over a week ago asking what my chances were and asking how to improve my odds but he never responded. I live near the capital of Texas so I'm afraid that my region will be extremely competitive for nominations. I'm an excellent speaker if I can manage to get an interview, but I'm still worried. Do I have a chance? If so, what are the best things I can do to improve?
