    Hi guys, I'm currently a High School Sophmore aiming to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point and continue on to branch Aviation and fly Direct Action Penetrators for the 160th SOAR. Any advice on achieving these goals would be greatly appreciated.

    Good luck on that quest, hopefully we'll serve side-by-side in a few years (you flying, I on the ground hahaha).

    Basically, make sure you get awesome grades at challenging courses (Honors/AP) and a great class rank (30% of WCS), superb standardized test scores (ACT and/or SAT, do try to take both! Some do better on one than the other) (30% of WCS), outstanding participation in extra-curriculars and leadership (10% athletic, 10% demonstrated leadership, 10% School Official's Evaluation (teacher recs)) and pratice for the CFA (another 10%)!

    WCS = Whole Candidate Score
