Hello, I am Megan and a long-time reader of the forum. I have a few questions myself and figured why not post them, as any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am a candidate for USAFA, class of 2020. My application is close to complete- with only needing to submit CFA scores, essays, and ALO interview (I have a presidential nomination- still applying for all others, also medically qualified). I've been working on my essays and although they are finished, I would greatly appreciate advice from a fresh set of eyes, on how I could greater improve the content. If any of you would be willing to take a look at my essays, please send me a PM! Also, I am scheduled to retake my ACT in about 2 weeks (September 12th). I took it last spring and didn't score nearly as well to be considered competitive. ACT English: 21 ACT Math: 23 ACT Reading: 23 ACT SR: 24 My current GPA is a 3.82 (heavy AP course load, joint-enrolled in local community college), so I definitely need higher test scores to be considered academically competitive for the academy. If anyone has any advice on test-taking strategies, tutoring options, or study methods for the ACT- it would be very helpful! I have never been a strong test taker, but I believe if I work at it I will be able to improve my scores. Thank you very much!
