    IB vs. AP

    bikndave, my school only offered Math SL as well. As long as you get those 12 points in HL, it doesn't matter which courses you take. To the OP, I'd say stick with the IB program. You won't get any more or less advantages by taking AP/college courses. You probably realize that the academy...

    Permit to Report Packet

    It is better to report earlier because you will have more gray space to unpack everything and get situated. Never again will there be another weekday where you'll have 2 hours to yourself. If there is one thing PS will teach you, it's to appreciate time. Use it wisely.

    Hey, don't worry about your chances of making into an academy; it will save you a lot of anxiety in the future. Just do your own thing and the academy will decide if you have the right stuff.

    SAT Scores

    Ha-ha, you guys are such overachievers. I absolutely resent my roomate, who occasionally complains about doing terrible on an exam, only to see him get a low A. Don't be that guy! I started applying to USNA with 580/430/420 SAT score and was basically rejected from NASS over the phone. After...
