I'm a 14 year old freshman in high school hoping to one day make it into the naval academy. I'm pretty new to forums in general so I suppose I'll just wing this... I'm a girl, and as I said I'm a freshman in high school. I'm a c/SrA in my schools AFJROTC program and I'm on the drill team. it's a relatively new program so we're still working to get it off the ground. I was on my schools Varsity, co-ed swim team in the fall (from which i have a varsity letter) and i'll be trying out for track this coming season. my GPA is somewhere between 3.8 and 3.9... I've been a girl-scout since I was little and am currently making planes for my gold award project (I've already earned bronze and silver) and I'm testing for black belt in karate this spring. I have no immediate family in the Navy, though my great uncle (referred to as 'grandpa spears' by my parents) was an officer in the navy. I have a cousin who's a captain in the air-force, my grandfather was in the army and my brother is going up for sergeant in the national guard. any advice I can get on improving my chances of getting into the Naval Academy would be much appreciated.
