Hello all. I am new on the forum and a junior in high school, and have a few questions regarding USMA. I have searched the forum, but could not find an answer. First, a bit about me and my high school: I am a newspaper editor, the 1st chair in the band, involved in Big Brothers/Big sisters, a Model UN captain, and a volunteer in multiple national political campaigns. I have traveled abroad twice, once to Brazil and another time to Qatar for Model UN conferences. I am also a varsity wrestler and an extremely competitive road cyclist racer. I am very interested in applying to USMA, but am concerned about gaining admission because of class rank and GPA. After attending a public middle school, I applied to a very demanding and prestigious prep-school to become more challenged and to prepare for college. I was accepted. I have done very well, but not as well as I would have done at the local public school. I maintain a 3.3 -3.4 GPA after 2 AP's and many Honors classes, and am about 30th in my class of 250. which I know is not nearly anything special compared to many applicants. However, after coming from public school, I know that my school is more challenging my local public school. My question is, will West Point view my GPA and class rank negatively, or will they take my high school difficulty into consideration? The majority of my peers attend Ivy and small liberal arts schools, so none of my advisors knew much about this. Thank you very much for your help.
