Hello, after speaking to my Blue and Gold officer, he believes I am pretty competitive for an appointment to USNA, and is almost positive that if I were denied, I would receive an appointment to NAPS, but I want to hear what other people think. I currently go to a magnet high school, I am in the science magnet and it is a very advanced school, making class ranks more competitive. My education throughout high school has been very STEM focused, but my freshman and sophomore year I got lots of B's and C's, because I didn't take high school very seriously. My junior and currently senior year I have done extremely well in school and have gotten almost only A's. I just finished my first semester of my senior year, so I do not know what my new GPA is, but before this semester it was a 3.34 and class rank of 48 out of 158. I have an ACT of 28, subscores of 29 on everything including writing except for science, got a 24 on that. I am the Commanding Officer for my school's Marine Corps JROTC unit, president of our International Thespian Society Troupe, representative for feminist club, flute section leader since freshman year, junior varsity soccer - offensive midfield starter, work 5 days out of the week at a pizza restaurant, am a female minority, bilingual, and a first generation American. I also live in Wichita, Kansas so it is not as competitive as a state. I only received a nomination from my Congressman, my Senator sent me a letter a couple days ago telling me they gave my nomination away because I received one from my Congressman. There are also only 9 of us now competing for an appointment because one of us was given an early appointment to USAFA and accepted. I would take a nomination to NAPS in a heartbeat, but I just wanted to know how likely I would be to get one. My CFA scores also were pretty average.
