    Hi so im in my junior year of highschool right now and im going to start applying to USMA as soon as January comes around. I wanted to go to USMA for a while but during my freshmen year in highschool i know that i slacked off. I still got majority As but i got a lot more Bs than now. I also didnt take as hard classes. In my junior year i am taking 3 Ap and 3 honors classes. I was wondering if my freshmen year will affect me when they look at my transcript. I know i can get my GPA up. Thanks for the info input guys/girls and i hope you all have a wonderful day.

    Don't worry about your freshman year since there is nothing you can do about it anyway. Also, I doubt very much it will hurt you. Many freshman take easier courses. Hell, they're freshman. Also, there are plenty of people out there who would kill for a year of A's and B's. Put it behind you. You can always spin it in an interview as adjusting to high school and working hard to improve since then.
