I am going to be applying to the Naval Academy next year (I'm in 11th grade now). I'm go to a private school in NYC with around 94 people in a grade. I'm pretty sure NYC isn't that competitive of an area for the Naval Academy. I would like to know if there are any major weaknesses in my application, and if I seem like I could be competitive. Academics: 3.77 GPA. I'm pretty sure it's going to be higher by the end of the year, since it doesn't include my 11th grade grades. In 9th and 10th grades, I got a lot of A-, but this year I have As in every class except for one. My school does not rank, since any ranking would be statistically insignificant in such a small school. (I've asked the college counselors and that is what they said). PSAT: 1350 ACT: Haven't taken it yet, but I have been taking practice tests and typically get around a 30 or a 31. Classes: My school does not have advanced classes for English and History until 11th grade, and does not have advanced science until 12th grade. Everyone in my school also takes two science classes a year, and each one meets half as often as a normal class. My school also does not have any AP classes. Regular English 9th and 1oth grades, advanced English 11th grade Physics/Chemistry, Chemistry/Biology, Biology/Physics World History, US History, Advanced US history Problem based math 9B and 10B, Precalculus (My school has a weird math program in 9th and 10th grades, but basically I was in the middle section, not basic or advanced. The curriculum included algebra I, algebra II, geometry, and some trigonometry). Spanish 3, 4, and 5 French 1 and 2 Problems in science (extra science class to explore parts of science that aren't normally taught in a typical science curriculum) Activities: C/1st Lt in Civil Air Patrol - Held high-ranking staff positions at the unit level and at encampments, been to several national activities Kenpo (martial arts) - Orange belt - Member of the black belt club, an advanced kenpo and leadership development program Russian language lessons Flying -Around 45 hours in a Cessna 172, close to solo Writing -wrote a novel (not published) in 9th grade for Camp NaNoWrimo -had a summer internship at a writing camp for children, where I helped 6-8 year olds write stories Awards: Billy Mitchell Award, Civil Air Patrol Veterans of Foreign Wars NCO Award, Civil Air Patrol Civil Air Patrol Achievement Award School clubs: History of Mechanized Warfare club -Leader this year, member since 9th grade Literary Magazine - member in 9th and 10th grades, interferes with History of Mechanized warfare club this year Thank you so much for reading all of this, and I would really appreciate any suggestions or any comments that you have.
