I'm going to start with the question I'm still unsure about. This way not everyone has to read the questions about my chances. Sorry this post is so long. I had completed everything in my file, but didn't have my last optional recommendation letter until about three weeks ago. I wanted to turn them all in at once. They refused to fax. I emailed my counselor with them and he said he would put them on my file. Last week my portal was updated and they're listed as received and reviewed. If that was added to my portal, does that mean my file hasn't been reviewed by the selection committee yet? Are the constantly reviewed each time it changes? Could my selection composite already be set and they just added it because it got turned in? Now that that's out of the way, I'm going to do the standard listing of my stats and ask for some opinions on what you think my chances of appointment are. School: GPA: 3.76 unweighted 4.03 weighted (in hindsight I should have done more homework) Class rank: 36/183 (not the best, I know, but maybe the handful of AP classes will help) On a side note I graduated in 2014. I went to college for a year (SPSU 3.03 gpa) I didn't really feel any motivation where I was. I put even less effort into it. Honestly. I'm a completely different person now than I was a year ago. However, it's kind of hard to show the academy that. I'm not going to make excuses about it though; it was my own fault. Sadly, they have that transcript too. Test Scores: SAT Critical Reading/Evidence Based Reading and Writing: 640 SAT Math: 690 SAT Writing: 590 ACT English: <22>** ACT Math: 27 ACT Reading: 32 ACT SR: 27 (I also want to ask about the sad 22 on the ACT. I know they'll clearly take the SAT scores, but could my ACT scores be holding me back since one of them isn't competitive even if my sat scores are all above average?) Athletics: 4 varsity letters in cross country 2 varsity letters in track (maybe 3 I don't remember anymore) maybe the 1 varsity letter in soccer CFA BT: 74ft Pull Ups: 14 SR: 8.54s Sit Ups: 87 Push Ups: 68 Mile: 6:03 My extracurricular composite should be good. I was heavily involved with FBLA in high school (president of the school's chapter for a while, state competitions, and the like). I also helped run a stall at a few relay for life walks and helped manage two march of dimes events through FBLA. I also manage about 30 people at work right now, but I'm not sure if that would be counted in the extracurricular composite or selection committee...or at all, I guess. I think my selection composite should be solid as well. My ALO emailed me after turning in his stuff and said "I have to say that it is one of my best products in a long time."...I'm not 100% sure he wasn't just saying that to make me feel better. I think the interview went well, but I'm a white male. The only diversity points I'm going to score are for being from a poor area and maybe divorced parents/single parent home. I'm not sure how my academic composite will turn out. My sat scores are just above the average for the last entering class and seem alright to me. I wish I had put more effort into my GPA though. Then that year at college probably doesn't look great. Any chance they would take the view of my high school performance over my college performance? They take consideration for increasing performance at the college level from high school. There's nothing I can do about it now though. I'm super nervous about this whole thing. I've done a lot of looking over everything I can find. I've spent some time checking these forums for a few months and have looked over everything the USAFA has given me. Here's a mildly helpful link that's not really hard to find, but I've been trying to measure myself against. I'm posting all of this to help calm my nerves by talking about it with someone. Even if it's not in my favor I just want to know everything that I can about where I stand and a lot of the people here have much more experience with this than I do. Wow, you made it to the end. Thanks for reading with us today. Come back next month to see how our story unfolds, but leave a comment first.
