I know it was said not to ask this, but it is gnawing away at me and I want to get any feedback from anyone who has had any connection with the academy. I am 17 and a rising senior, white and a male, and I am from Eugene Oregon. It has been my dream since I was a child to attend the USNA, and everything I have done in High school has been in an effort to receive an appointment. My GPA is a 4.0 unweighted, and I'm not sure about weighted because my school doesn't do that. Class rank is at least top 10%, probably higher but again, I don't know for certain because my school doesn't rank students either. I am an IB diploma candidate, and have taken 5 IB courses and will take I believe 5 or 6 more this coming year. My SAT was a 1220, but I am retaking it as many times as I can until my application is due, and I am confident that I will greatly increase my score. (I know this is my weakest area.) For sports, I have lettered in football since my Sophomore year, I am the starting quarterback and the team Captain as voted on by my teammates. For baseball, I have lettered since my freshman year, and have been a Team Captain this year as well. I also received all league honorable mentions in both football and baseball last year, and I am hoping to work towards first team all league quarterback this year. Extra curriculars include: "Boys To Men" Club years 10, 11 and 12, I've given 10 plus speeches in front of over a thousand people. Church group member years 10, 11 and 12 approximately 150 hours of community service (Not sure if this is a lot compared to other people) throughout high school. Sea Cadet member years 10 and 11, achieved the rank of Petty Officer Third Class, graduated from POLA (Petty Officer Leadership Academy) in August of 2017, and have been the ALPO and LPO of my Division. Worked for a week in a support role under active duty CPOs and POs at the Armed Forces Career Center near my high school through the Cadets, and learned a lot about leadership from them all. National Honor Society member, years 10, 11 and 12 Associative Student Body Treasurer, year 12 Work Experience: McDonalds Crewperson, year 11. Worked for about 3 months in the offseason for between 10 and 20 hours a week. Jordan Kent Skills Camp Youth Coach, summer going into my Junior year. I attended STEM in 2016 and went to the Summer Seminar this year, and loved it! below are my CFA scores. basketball throw: 79 feet pullups: 10 pushups: 49 situps: 81 Mile Run: 6:10 Also, some other misc things that I included on my Candidate Activities Record but don't know if it will help me: I run a history page on Instagram called @warpixs with almost 5600 followers, and I am writing a novel, currently at about 40,000. words. I am nearly complete with my application except for my official interview (which is scheduled for the 6th of August) and my Medical Review which I am working on right now. Again, sorry for the long post, but given all of this, would you say that I make a good candidate to the Academy or at least NAPS? By the way, I am also applying for NROTC and will attend either the Citadel or Texas A&M if I am not accepted the first time. Thanks for reading, and any responses would be greatly appreciated!
