I know a 2019 appointee to USMA ... great friend of my son. He had similar numbers as you.

He was also a three sport athlete ... captain of all three ... and went to states for all three. With solid leadership and activities.
Then theres hope I can make it:D maybe I should Improve a bit my school rank

Until yesterday my son was a USMA candidate 2025 on the NWL with a strong application but yesterday he received a TWE anyway. One word of advice as you are in the next class and new on this forum, you really just need to strive to be the best you can be and submit a great application but comparing yourself to others on this forum is going to lead to a lot of headaches, sleepless nights and gut punching disappointment if you get the wrong impression that you are a shoe-in for an appt. Your academics look great and so does your CFA but there is so much more to it. A TON of your competitors are way up there as well. There are so many moving parts in this process that you can not control. Focus on the ones you can. And read up on nominations so you understand the slate concept.
