I am a freshman at a high school in Maine. I was just wondering if I can get some input from you all, because you're older and may have techniques, flaws, or advantages in applying for a service academy and it would be helpful if you can help me out so I wont make the same mistakes, and also your advice will greatly help, since I have three years to go. Here is my situation so you can get a view of where I stand: I'm applying to USNA and I know a lot about if because my dad, grandpa, and great-grandpa went there. I am a freshman in Maine, I get pretty good grades, I don't know my GPA since im a frosh, but my semester grades were all above a 90, overall im a good student who takes all the honors classes I can take. For activities, I played freshman soccer and now im playing freshman baseball. I'm very good at baseball so im bound to make varsity. I'm also involved in scouting, currently a star scout and getting inducted into the Order of the Arrow. And, i'm on my high school music department's council, the 10 of us make big plans, like where we travel to and perform(big leadership role), and im in the band. Im a very active person so fitness isnt a problem, along with good character. Any input on how im currently going and maybe what I need to work on?? while its early???
