Hi, my name's Nate. I really want to attend the Air Force Academy, but I'm not sure how much of a chance I have. I turn 17 tomorrow, and I'm a junior in high school. Also, I haven't taken the SAT or the ACT, but I will take SAT this Saturday and ACT most likely in April. GPA: 3.17 Class Rank: 106/372 AFQT: 86 My grades for last semester are: Eng 11: B Alg 2: B Physics: C US Hist: A Lvl 1 French: B AFJROTC: A I haven't done much as far as activities, which I know is going to hurt, but here goes: Volunteer at Care Home: about 10 hours JROTC Basketball Team JROTC Drill Team (Heavy Weapons) Party Equipment Delivery (family owned): since 6th grade Thrift Store Salesman: 2 years Woodland Christmas Parade 2010: First Place Unarmed I know my grades were very low last semester, and I've kept A's this quarter. If it helps any, in JROTC I hold the rank of 2nd Lt. and am 99th Squadron Deputy, which is responsible for directing unit activities. Thank you for your time. I welcome any and all advice.
