    Sounds impressive to me! One side note, did you realize that 100 pushups is over the max? You were only hurting yourself by going over the max of 75, same for the mile run, however it is the last event so no harm done there . . .

    Mark Neilsen: my sons were a combo of home-schooled, cyber-schooled, and had 45+ credits from two local universities. They didn't take the ACT though, but scored very well on the SAT.

    Please feel free to pm me if you'd like.

    It looks like you are well prepared. Do not neglect the higher math offered by local colleges. That and the science classes at the local U's were invaluable.
