I am currently a high school freshman planning to apply to USAFA in a couple of years, and I'm not sure if I will have enough leadership credentials by the time I apply. Right now I am a Boy Scout working on Eagle, having been a patrol leader twice and my troop's assistant senior patrol leader once, along with another term as a "scribe" and another as a quartermaster. I am also in my school's marching/concert band and play first-chair baritone, and it looks like I will probably be a marching section leader junior or senior year. Also, I run C-team cross country and JV track (XC doesn't have a captain, track I'm not sure about yet), so there are opportunities there too (if I can only get my race times down a little My question is simply: is this enough? Seems a little unimpressive compared to some of the resumes you find with cadets. I have read a lot on these forums about the CAP and I am interested in joining, but the earliest I can see myself doing that would be sometime next summer heading into my sophomore year, possibly too late to advance much? Leadership in XC/track really depends on race times so that is a big "if" as well. I understand that as a freshman I still have plenty of time to improve, but I want to have a plan laid out to make sure I have all the advantages I can get when it's time to apply. Does anyone know of any leadership roles USAFA likes to see that I could ostensibly do in the next two years or so?
