I've been lurking around these forums for about a year now. I'm heading into my senior year and am chest-deep in the ROTC and Academy application procedures... I'd like to start off and say that these forums are fantastic resources for aspiring Midshipmen/Cadets. I recently attended Keystone Boy's State, June 24th-30th. I was truly humbled by the level of involvement and success that some of these kids had. I was able to win the nomination of my party to run for governor and ended up winning governor in the primary election. I know that Boy's State is a major resume booster, but how about being elected Governor? I know that on each Activity Record for each Academy's application there is a checkbox for 'Governor' or 'Lt. Governor'. My SAT's are 740CR, 660M, and 700W. GPA is 3.255U/W and I am ranked top 40% in a very competitive high school. I am a legacy; my father attended the Academy, '85, and my mother us a AFROTC product from Duke University. I'm not giving a full list of my qualifications as that wasn't my original question. Any help would be much appreciated! Again, how much will Boy's State Governor help me?
