Hey guys! I have been following these forums since my freshman year, and I have read a ton of information regarding the academies. All the stickies, and a ton of posts. I made a sort of “chance me” thread my freshman year and it really helped me out. I am honestly open to any type of criticism you guys have, as I am really invested into attending one of these academies and want to work as hard as I can towards gaining admission. Having people tell me my strong and weak points is extremely helpful. So here is my thread asking fellow forum members to “chance me” and or provide any information I need to know. Top Academy Choices: West Point United States Naval Academy United States Air Force Academy Gender: female Academics Freshman Year: Course Schedule Honors Algebra II (Took Algebra I in 8th grade) Honors Biology I Honors World History and Civilizations Honors English 9 Government German I 36th in a class of 336Weighted GPA: 4.2 Sophomore Year: Course Schedule Honors Geometry Honors Chemistry Economics Music Theory and Composition Honors English 10 ACP Speech CC German II Psychology Health and Wellness Weighted GPA: 4.2 PSAT Score: 1800 Junior Year: Course Schedule Fitness for Athletes Pre-Calculus Honors Physics I Language A1 HL 11 IB (IB English) Adv. Social Sciences (U.S. History) CC Honors German III Weighted GPA: 4.3 I am going to take the SAT twice, once my Junior year and once my Senior year. Can I take the ACT twice? If so, I would like to take it twice. Athletics: Participated in Pole Vault last year. I was getting very close to the lettering standard but I pulled a muscle in my leg and basically sucked the rest of the season. This year I plan on taking all precautionary measures and making my goal above lettering standard. I am preparing for the CFA by taking a weightlifting class at school as well as running and exercising at home. I have improved quite a bit already, but I am still very nervous about the CFA. I participate in competitive Tae Kwon Do, not a black belt, but am working towards it. Extra-Curricular: I know band does not count towards sports, but it is something that I am extremely dedicated to and I have been told that military academies appreciate dedication. Here are my current stats for that: I am the Drum Major for our Marching Band. We have 150 members and I was chosen from a group of 15 students to apply. Since I have this position my junior year, usually this means I will also be DM my senior year. We have two concert bands at my school. The top band (which is made up of the best players) is Symphonic Band and the second band is regular Concert Band. I am the first chair player for a 20 member section, which means I am the first chair for Symphonic Band. I also play for the Concert Band on a different instrument. Have been a part of the Pep Band (4 years), Jazz Band (3 years), Concert Band (2 years), Symphonic Band (3 years), and Marching Band (3 years) Already lettered and earned a chevron several times. I am also going to apply for our National Honor Society once I get enough community service hours. Leadership: Drum Major (hopefully for two years) Took a leadership camp during the summer (I don’t know if that counts for anything, I just thought I would add it) Will be applying for a scholarship program. It’s a competition based off of a talent, an interview, etc. As I said, I will be applying for our National Honor Society sometime soon. So if anyone could provide any comments to help me out, I would greatly appreciate it!
