Hello. I am a female and am currently a junior in high school. I am looking to apply to West Point and have already began the nomination/admissions process. I am going to be attending the USNA Summer Seminar in June (I didn't get accepted into the USMA one). I have started to do more running. Is around a 8:30-9:00 minute mile had to be starting out on? I know when it comes to being a female it doesn't really matter because I have read in previous threads that if females want to be respected they should be doing the same, if not better than the males. Or am I most likely going to get smoked when it would come to the CFA or Beast? I am going to work as hard as I can every day because this is something I am very serious and dedicated about.
