    Hey guys, I was wondering if you guys think I will be accepted into USNA class of 2021.

    I have a 4.0 unweighted GPA, 4.71 weighted GPA.
    Currently an IB Junior.
    Captain of Tennis team + 2 years varsity tennis and 1st team all conference
    VP of Science Olympiads and Captain of a Science Olympiad competitive team
    Captain of largest Relay for Life team at my school, Chairman on the Relay for Life planning commission.
    Volunteer at the VA hospital near me
    An active member in National Honor Society, Junior Statesmen of America, Future Business Leaders of America (qualified for national competition and got fourth place in the state), and Model UN.
    I have a 35 ACT Reading, 34 ACT Science, 33 ACT Math.
    National Merit Qualifier 1460/1520 on the PSAT
    1390 on the new SAT (I know I did considerably better on the PSAT :(
    Uncle is currently a captain in the Navy

    Needs improvement but I believe is still passing right now (keep in mind I play tennis a fairly cardio heavy sport with little upper body strength)

    6:00 mile fairly easily
    80 foot basketball toss
    5 pull ups
    55 pushups
    95 curl ups
    N/A for shuttle run

    Thanks so much for the input! If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

    Check out some previous years' "Chance Me" threads for the competition you will likely be facing. Looks pretty solid, especially your ACT scores, but again, nobody on here can give you a percentage chance. You're definitely on the right track in everything. And while it's great that your uncle is in the Navy, there are plenty of people on here whose parents are USNA grads and didn't get appointed - not to discourage you, but just make sure you understand that it won't be much of an advantage.

    Are those CFA numbers from a practice test? or individually compiled? If they're from separate events, they will not accurately reflect the fatigue you will feel as you do each event in the CFA. Also, work on the pull-ups regularly - they can take a bit of time to increase. You want that number closer to 8.

    Stats look solid. Ensure you have hit the big 3 of Chem, Calc and Physics in high school. Remember it's hard to judge because of nominations. From a competitive area like Northern Virginia there will be lots of kids with stats like this. From a less competitive area it could be a different story. Get going on your application, cruise around the forum as it will help you a lot with the question you asked (and none of us can definitively answer), get working on your Noms, contact your BGO, get in shape and have a little fun too!
