    The fact is you are probably going to get the exact same answer as always given.

    Your stats look good, but nobody here sits on the board, nor do we know what the competition on your slate looks like, thus it would be unfair to you to give you any chances at all.

    I agree with others have previously said. In addition, we have no idea what your teacher recommendations might say (good or bad) so part of what this means is that you can never look just at a candidate's 'stats' and say how they do in the application process.

    One other thing, in the context of applying to a service academy, 'leadership' refers to things you have done or accomplished while in h.s......attending a seminar about leadership is not considered an example of that.

    I would say you have a very competitive resume. So you are heading in the right direction...and you seem to know what they are looking for.
