Hello All,

I am FTA at my base for about 3 months--I heard about the LEAD program from a friend and started doing some research; after a few weeks of pondering whether or not I wanted to apply, I decided to do it! The major thing holding me back is my academic profile...My SAT scores are pretty low and my GPA doesn't complement them either.

My two-part SAT is: Critical Reading/writing - 550 and Math - 450
My High School GPA was a 3.4.

I doubt I'll get in due to my poor SAT, but I still want to try. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.

Actually, should I even apply this year? Instead of applying now, should I build a more competitive package for next year?
