Hi, I am a high school Junior girl and am wondering if anyone could give me some advice on getting into the Air Force Academy. Here are some of my stats: 4.o weighted gpa, 3.87 unweighted. I'm taking 3 AP classes this year but I haven't taken the ACT yet. Varsity cross country and Track runner for 3 years, 20:18 5k. I'm pretty athletic, and am working on my upper body strength this semester. Around 100 hours of volunteering at my local library, summer camps at church, goodwill, etc. Have my own cleaning business. Worked for a start up bracelet company bagging bracelets and packaging them to send out. I'm planning to do: Girls state, FCA leader, Tutoring and volunteering to coach a youth sports team at the YMCA. Are there any other things I can do to make my application even more competitive? I'm studying my butt off for the ACT, so I guess we will see what happens with that. One of my concerns is that I don't have many leadership positions, my coach does not have cross country or track captains because of the drama it caused. I was homeschooled for up until Sophomore year in high school, and then I switched schools this year, so I haven't been able to do many clubs and establish a leadership position in them. (except for Cross Country and Track) Basically, I will do anything to get into the Air Force Academy, even if that means going to college with ROTC and reapplying until I get in. It is my dream to serve my country, and I will not stop until I reach it. Oh ya and if anyone has tips on getting a nomination or just about the application process as a whole, that would be great. I feel like I am behind compared to other applicants already, since I am kind of clueless about the whole thing. Thanks so much!
