    I'm a junior and of course about ready to start the application process, and I would like to here some thoughts on my chances. Ill start with saying my GPA is not so great, but my high school is a jesuit school from which 99% of each class go on to college. I got a 31 composite on the ACT first try, a 202 on the PSAT, a 4 on the AP US History. I am also in three AP classes this year, spanish, english comp, and government. I have always been in honors math and will take AP calculus, AP biology, AP comparative government, and AP English next year. AS well as a college level intro to engineering course.

    I have a varsity letter in tennis and played football freshman year (i left to pursue tennis). I write for my school newspaper, started debate this year with the school's new team, I am a big brother to the middle school kids at my school, and i am in a community service program with over 50 hours.

    See my sticky above. There is no way anyone can tell you -- and anything we say is meaningless anyway. We can tell you that you're a shoe-in for an appointment but we don't make the decisions. So all you get from us is a false sense of hope or gloom. I don't mean to sound harsh, but it's true.

    All you can do is put forth the best application you can to USNA and your MOCs and then see what happens.

    If you have specific questions about USNA or about your situation (e.g., how does USNA view x course vs. y course), folks here will be happy to help.
