Looks like a good start. Continue to keep your grades up, take the most challenging classes you can, look for leadership opportunities (class officer, captain in a sport, etc) and stay out of trouble.

Sorry, I can't answer this question for you.

High School student goverment positions, expectations and responsibilities vary widely based on the school. You would need to find that out by talking with other students and/or faculty members at your school. Seems to makes sense to first found out what that might involve at your school before deciding it is something you want to do.

You should strive for leadership positions because it is something you are interested in and feel you can contribute to your school (whether in sports or student government or some other form of ECA). Doing these things just to fill out a better college resume is the wrong motivation.

The "Redbook" is current. Class requirements are set for each entering class. You can look at the class of 2012 but that is no guarantee their requirements will be the same for future classes.

You are a high school freshman - it's good you are starting young. No one can tell you what your chances are from freshman grades, however. What you want to do is plan your high school curriculum. Take Challenging classes. Try to plan your math so you take Calculus your senior year. Make sure you make Chemistry and Physics a priority. Take Honors or AP classes - English, US History etc.

If you are in MCJROTC and play football that is terrific. Concentrate on quality than quanitity. Be passionate about what you do.
