Hello, I'm currently a junior in high school looking at applying to the service academies with my favored academy being west point. My high school background is that go to a college prep school that offers harder academic courses. Freshmen year i played JV football and swam on the Varsity swim team. Last year I took up Cross Country stayed with the swimming in the winter and ran track in the fall, and playin on sticking with those same sports for my junior and senior year. I've lettered in Cross Country two times, once in track, and am looking at receiving my first letter in swimming this year. I was elected recently to be senior captain of the Cross Country team for next year. I've prepared myself for the academies and pray that I'll be accepted for the class of 2014. Any advice on the application process would be very appreciated. Thanks in advanced and good luck to all the other future applicants as well.
