    Thats all I can think of that will really matter on here. I passed all of my medical stuff and got my nomination. So please tell me what you think based on my information. This seems like a typical information from everyone else except a lot less. I moved to America in 5th grade and I didn't speak english enough to play sports or join clubs till 9th grade. I did run track and field in 8th grade and set the record for 4 X 100 meter sprint; I was the starting runner. anyways Please tell me what you think:) Go Class of 2015!!!

    If you seriously ran 100 meters in 10 seconds you need to do track, because you would be the high school national champion, and could possible have a chance on the Olympics team....but i doubt it was 10 seconds lol but your resume looks pretty good, i bet youll get an appt, unless you really screw something up

    Well the 100 meter sprint was probablly 110~120. We ran a full soccer length. And my teacher yelled out 10 seconds as a crossed the line. This was in a class called "fitness of life". also called "extreme PE" haha. Its not official time but it was for a grade and well thats about approximate. And thank you for the encouragement

    Wait, you were the INDIVIDUAL Arizona XC champion? If so, then you are pretty much definitely in....but with a 5:15 mile time, I doubt that is the case (no offense). That is a good time for a girl and a decent time for a boy.
    Anyway, looking at your ACT scores, you should probably try to get them a little higher because a composite of 28 is good but not great. Being in the top 10% is good though :)
    I don't mean to offend you, but you don't make it clear if you are male or female, but regardless, your potential CFA scores seem pretty strong. You are well on your way to maxing out some of the events, no matter what your gender is.
    You have a strong profile, but there really are so many factors. My profile is actually similar to yours with slightly higher test scores, more sports, different clubs, and 2 less AP courses & I'm still waiting for a resolution amongst other triple qualified candidates. Good luck to you, I hope you get in! :)
