    I got accepted to Boy's state so I will be attending that this summer

    I already know I need to bring up my ACT scores (which I'm working on) but is everything else at least somewhat competitive?

    Looks like you are on the right track! Keep improving that ACT as you stated. Stay involved with scouts and sports. Stay healthy and don't get into trouble.
    This is a highly competitive process specifically in your area.
    Think about the possibility of being recruited for one of your sports. A lot of earlier appointments were for athletic recruiting.
    Watch your time lines for applying and good luck!

    My resume was very similar to yours. Try to get those ACT scores up; I greatly improved my scores by religiously doing practice tests twice a week for around two months. There is no substitute for drilling questions over and over again. I also attended the Maryland Boys State program and it was an incredible experience. I was in your shoes about two years ago and just became a recognized 4-degree today. The academy experience is incredible and I encourage you to keep pushing to get those scores up as well as keep that GPA up. Aim high!

    You have posted the same question on 3 of the SA's. Not sure the replies will be any different.
