Up until about the beggining of my junior year's second semester I was always the slacker and just went for the bare minimum and early february I decided to actually do something with my life and deci ded if I was going to do it I was going to do it right and be the best I could so I started working hard. My GPA is about a 99, 72nd out of about 270 (not good but I've raised it about 10 places in the last semester) Also my SAT scores are pretty low (600 math; 510 CR; 470 Writing; 8 essay)but I plan on taking every single SAT and ACT from now till I get an answer back. I have been in SADD for 3 years (officer one year) and band for my seventh year. I have 12 hours of TJC (local junior college) credit and my senior year I will earn another 9... and I am taking AP physics AP Calculus and Spanish III Honors (most difficult language course my school offers). I was put into the the Nat. Honor Society my junior year, but my real question is do I have a chance to get into the USNA, will they just see my previous grades mixed with my new grades that are just decent together or will I have a chance to explain my new found drive for excellence to them?
