    usma food

    Luckydoggy, I think your best bet is to ignore scoutpilot and to continue researching as much as you can about the academies. Don't let anyone discourage you! Attention to detail is the military way and it seems like you have that going for you. Good luck with everything.

    usma food

    Calm down everyone. The kid is just curious about the food and you are taking is comments way out of context. His decision about the academies won't come down to the food, but it is good to know. People on this forum are so judgmental.

    CFA score over 650?

    There are 8 events. To get a 100 in an event you must max it. If you look at the chart in the link, your basketball throw is probably keeping you down a bit. But you are probably close to a 650. http://www.usma.edu/admissions/shared%20documents/cfa_instructions.pdf

    Would I Be High Up In The NWL?

    I think that all depends on who your FFR is. Mine was not helpful at all and has not contacted me in over 3 months at this point, but I received an appointment. That is not an indicator for all areas.

    8th Semester Transcript

    A friend of mine who is a plebe this year got As and Bs and a D on his final transcript. I wouldn't worry too much, but getting up to a C would not hurt.

    Am I competitive enough for West Point?

    The 34 on my ACTs. My scouting experience. My science Olympiad national medals. I would say those are the highlights. Plus, at my senatorial interview, they were really impressed with my interview answers, which I'm sure led to me being their primary.

    Am I competitive enough for West Point?

    Well good luck! It's all about getting a primary nomination. If you can do that, you'll be good. Also if you get your scores up a bit higher, you have a great chance no matter what. West Point doesn't care how many times you test, so test as much times as you need!

    Am I competitive enough for West Point?

    I would say you have a solid chance. It's good that you work. If anything, work on your leadership and definitely take the ACTs. I got a 2010 on the SATs and a 34 on the ACTs, so you could pick up some points there like I did. I was not accepted to SLE but I am a member of the class of 2019...

    Print it. Fill out your info. Give it to your employer with an addressed envelope to the Admissions office. Basically it's exactly like a written recommendation.

    Employer Evaluation

    It would really help you to submit one. They need the evaluation form to award your file points. Because you were not accepted in the first round, you are likely to be depending on the NWL now. The NWL is entirely based on the amount of points your file had accumulated. You would be doing...

    Over the max number of Nominees?

    It is likely that some (or most) got a congressional nomination or just a nomination from another source. Also, they could have been nominated for the other Academies, not just USNA.
