    I'm a little worried about this application process. I have been working hard for as long as I can remember for this. I was just wondering if anybody could tell where I'm standing right now.

    Class Rank: 4/142

    Unweighted GPA: 3.977 (I got my first B last semester 89.1:mad:)

    Weighted GPA: 4.552 (I've been taking the highest AP and honors classes at my school)

    ACT Scores: English:23 Math:26 Reading:29 Sci:26 (I taken practice ACTs on all of them and have averaged a 29-30 for all I know these are low)

    Extracurricular Activities:

    Varsity Soccer Letters (2 years) Captain
    Varsity Cross Country Letter (1 year same season as soccer)
    Varsity Track Letters (2 years currently in track for another letter)
    I qualified for state or division in all these sports and received 2nd team all division for soccer.

    National Honor Society
    Students Against Destructive Decisions
    Skull N Bones Club (pep club)
    Boy Scouts of America (I have received my Eagle Scout)
    Jazz Band
    There are now JROTC units at my school or within an hour of my town or I would be enrolled in that also.

    So where am I at? I know my ACT scores are low but I've been studying for over a month for the next test and I'm pretty sure I'm ready. Wish me luck!:smile:

    You have a pretty good resumé.

    Just make sure that you continue your good work and whatever you do start early on your application. WP has rolling admissions, so the sooner you apply the better chances you have of getting.

    Haha. Wow. You make my resume look like crap, and I have appointments to both USNA and USMA. Keep up the good work.

    Everything is good except ACT scores which are easy to fix. Retake them and maybe take the SAT instead. If you are getting 30's on your practice it shouldn't be a problem.

    BA's right. Everything is good except for the ACT scores. Get those up and you should be very competitive. Your weighted GPA is quite impressive, mine's only a 4.2. How's your physical stuff though like CFA practice scores and such?
