    Looking good. If you can boost your math SAT/ACT, that would be ideal. Otherwise, everything looks like a typical candidate.

    You are looking really good. You have some pretty competitive EC's and sports. Should give you a pretty good chance. I hope to see you next year.

    Good Luck

    I would re-take the ACT, because if you can pull the M up to a 29 or so, your ACT would rise to a 32, wich is above the avg.

    I would be concern that the AFA is an engineering school and the Math score is below the avg, even for the SAT (the avg is over 660). You always want to be above the avg, not below it.

    Otherwise you look really strong

    Your stats look pretty good! Just raise your test scores and letter in those sports.
