I’m posting this knowing that y’all have probably seen posts like this dozens of times, but please bear with me. I would like to list out my achievements, as I still have quite some time in high school to improve on these, and ask you what I can do to build and improve my application. I will be applying to USAFA, USNA, and the Merchant-Marine Academy. I am currently a sophomore. I am a varsity Cross Country runner and I am an Ultramarathon runner in my own time. I am the sophomore class secretary for student council, a member of key club, and quite active in serving in my church (I started a life group that I lead). I am the president of the republicans club at my school and quite involved in community politics (it is worth noting that I have met my congressional representative and senators on several occasions and I am very familiar with his staff), additionally I am have lettered for the debate, current events, math, number sense, and mock congress teams. I am the founder and “captain” (president) of Fellowship of Christian Athletes at my school. I am also the historian for the math club. Finally, I’m 3/325 in my class rank and climbing. I’m quite worried about my competitiveness, but there’s a lot of room for growth here. I’m reaching for Stuco and NHS President/vice-president and better officer roles in the math club. I am also talking about founding a Beta Club at my school and the benefits of that, but we do already have a key club. I have also taken the PSAT and have national Merit in my goals. My biggest flaws in the current status of my application are that I only have one varsity sport. I might letter in track but, as you can tell as I am an Ultra runner, I’m not a fan of the short distances in track. I’m just not a crazy good athlete. I am open and begging for constructive criticism and advice on the next 2.5 years of high school. My school doesn’t have a lot of clubs or classes so I have opportunities to be the founder of a lot of things if anybody has recommendations.
