Hi I'm a senior this year and would love to go the the Academy, but I'm doubtful about my prospects. I have been homeschooled (not charter schooled) since 1st grade and have been very active in volunteering and athletics. Overall, I think I have a pretty good list of accomplishments: 700 CR 750 Wr SAT Scores 3.6 GPA Eagle Scout at 14, SPL at 15, Order of the Arrow Ceremonies team for a year Swimming since age 9, but where I live homeschoolers are not allowed to participate in High School sports, so it's all USA Swimming (I would consider myself good but not great, top-20 in my county) In addition, I have been coaching the 10&us on my team for a year and teaching swim lessons For over a year, I've been a Red Cross certified Lifeguard and USA Swimming certified coach I volunteer every weekend at my church, and am active in several church-related activities I would hope that the above is pretty competitive, but I left something out. I stink at math. Okay "stink" is a strong word. "Average" might be better. I made it through three years of High School math with B+ averages, but I have a 550 Math SAT. I hope to boost it to a 600 or so with a ton of prep work, but a 640+ just doesn't seem likely. I'm also taking the ACT, but I don't think it'll be much different. So... do I have any hope? I wouldn't be looking for a Math or Engineering major (More likely Poli Sci). But I can't help feeling like this one thing will shoot my chances.
