Hello! I understand there's so many people on here who ask what their chances will be of getting an appointment to a service academy, and well...I'm on of them. I understand you can never really know until you're either accepted or declined, but I thought'd be nice to get some feedback and advice from people here. GPA: 3.81 ACT PLAN:25 composite, projected ACT score 27-32 Honors classes, advanced math course Extracurriculars/Leadership/Clubs: Varsity Cross Country Varsity Track and Field Club Track and Field CyberPatriot (made to to Regionals/4th round) DECA (state qualifier, 1st place) Student Government (currently class Vice President) Civil Air Patrol (Mitchell Award Recipient, soon to be Earhart) AFJROTC Speech and Debate CPFT- Mile: 6:00 (at altitude) (avg. 6:00-6:25) Pushups: 35 (cadence) Situps: 72 (1 min test) (avg. 64-68) Shuttle Run: 8.4 (avg. 9.2) Basketball Throw: n/a Pullups: 3 I'm also very active with church and the community, however my main focus is on school, sports, and CAP. My GPA isn't very high, but I have all A's except for a C in Spanish, and B in math. I have issues with math due to moving to the US from Europe a couple years ago (where I also had to take German, and then required to move to Spanish Freshman year), and I've skipped Geometry, Algebra, and Pre Alg. I am also taking the ACT in two months for the first time, and my plan is to keep retaking it until I get a mean score of 30-33. I'm starting IB next year (along with 1-2 AP classes), which should really boost my GPA, and I start working at the Commissary in May. I'm hoping to go to Girl's State and Summer Seminar summer after Junior year. I'm a Sophomore in high school, and I want to do everything I can to get into the USAFA, or USAFAPS. Any advice? Should I drop or add any activities? Will my grades ruin me as far as the academic portion of the application goes? What's your opinion on IB as opposed to AP? Thank you very much!
