I've read the "What are my chances?" sticky and I realize that no one here can give me a definitive answer, but I would like to get peoples opinion on my situation. I'm 20 and about to start my senior year at the University of Colorado-Denver. I very much want to join the navy as an officer and have looked into both USNA and OCS. I don't want to start a "you should just go to OCS" discussion as I am set on the academy. My dilemma is that my SAT scores are very low (520 verbal and 670 math). The reason for my low scores is that by the time I took the SAT I had already taken over two years of college courses (at a university not AP), which allowed me to apply as a transfer student as opposed to a new freshmen. The only reason I took the SAT was because my school made me (I had already been accepted to my number one choice). My high school gpa was 4.33. I am a physics major (3.82 GPA), the only classes I have less than A's in are one physics class and three chem classes (all B's). I am the project leader for a research lab at my school, which I started and found funding for. I have hundreds of hours of volunteer work and several extra curricular's. My question isn't am I going to get accepted, but rather does my clear success in an actual university negate my low test scores from an admissions perspective? My understanding is that those tests are designed to predict success in college, so it would make since that the SAT really wouldn't matter since my college transcript is impressive. Agree or disagree? Note that on top of several years of math/physics/chem/biology, I have taken my fair share of humanities. I intend on retaking the SAT or ACT, the problem is that I might not be able to get my scores back by the deadlines for all of my potential nomination sources. That being said, I am more worried about the opinion of my Congressmen than the academy (right now at least).
