Got my TWE from USNA today much to my dismay. Considering that I surpassed the average academic and extracurricular stats reported in the 2020 class profile, I am wondering if maybe it just came down to the slate, as I have heard that my district (NY-4) is one of the most competitive in the country, and if I had lived someplace else perhaps I would have been accepted. I have already decided that I will reapply next year, but I'm really not sure how I could improve my chances further if I'm still going to be pitted against another overachiever again. Since the lease is up on my flat this year, I may move a few towns over to a new district if that helps. How can competitiveness for a particular district be measured? I'm thinking school performance but what else is a factor? Thanks and good luck to all in achieving your goals.
