What are my chances of acceptance into a military academy? Here is a basic run down of me up until my current junior year. 3 time varsity football player - Defensive Player of the year Award, District Player of the year award, many all star selections, will be team captain my senior year, hold a school record 2 years of Track - 4th in 200 meter dash at districts -indoor 200 meter dash record Student Council member 2 years Athletic Association member Will be confirmed Catholic next year SADD member Boy Scouts member( will not achieve eagle scout) GPA: 3.18 -my junior year gpa is a 4.0 since it became very important to me. SAT: 1250 (confident that it will be 1350 by fall of next year. Am not sure if that is worth anything being that it'll be higher) I have access to solid recommendations. I was wondering if it is not too late to add more stuff to my overall record. I'm willing to do anything. I looked into boys state and am not sure if by doing that this summer, it will improve my chances. Same goes for SLE. I'm just confused on the process since my applications are to go out asap and I won't have the chance to have these on there quite yet till the summer. What are my chances and what can I do to improve them? I've heard about possibly going to ROTC for a year and then applying for West point. I know I can get my gpa in college up this way. Or maybe a prep school would work? I'm not sure of my options and am really looking for someone who can offer advice. One more thing I've heard of is going to basic training my junior summer. Would that improve my chances? Any help on any part of my post would be greatly appreciated.
