    I am applying for USMA and USCGA making Coastguard my top pick. For my weighted GPA, I have 3.74 and my unweighted GPA is 4.23. My SAT is currently lacking which is 1340 and my ACT is the worst which is 26. I have been a class president, H20 community service club secretary, Robotics team captain, Student government treasurer, NHS President, Math club Vice President, H20 President. I also attend and help out in my community and also RedCross and U.S.O. I am also 4/56 in my class as of now. I participate in Varsity Volleyball, Rugby and Football as QB. I got accepted to AIM program a few weeks ago and I’m attending week 2. I got denied from NASS and SLE and did not apply to AF seminar. I am currently working on my SATs and I’m also considering taking SAT 2 on November. If you have any comments, suggestions, anything in your mind about my competitiveness, just let me know so I can improve my application. Thank you for your time!

    These are recent early action statistics for your reference. The fact is that no one on this forum knows the magic formula and I've heard it best explained as 'pieces in a puzzle'. You need to present the best application package possible for consideration and hope it matches one of those puzzle pieces.

    Also, I sent my medical information and forms to AIM program. Will I receive a reply stating that they have received it? I’m worried about the ‘failure to submitting medical requirements’ and not being able to participate in AIM.

    On your application, please don't make the silly mistake of misspelling the name of your top pick.
