Hey I'm currently a Junior attending a school in Pennsylvania and I was wondering if anyone could take a look at my resume and suggest what I can do to strengthen it. For a couple years now I've been looking into the service academies and have really been looking into the Naval Academy or West Point. I have a 4.18 cumulative GPA and I just took the SAT, but I have received a 1260 on the PSAT and am expecting a higher score on the regular SAT. I do not know my exact rank, and my class size is only around 120, but I believe I rank closer to the top. I have taken all honors or AP classes my entire high school career and have participated in basketball and football my entire career, most likely acquiring 6 Varisty letters in all by the time I graduate. I will also most likely be the Captain of both teams for next year. I am interested in playing football at one of the academies, but that is not a major concern. As for extracurricualrs, I write for the school newspaper and am in Spanish club. I volunteer at my local CCD and write for the local newspaper, The Citizen, where I have put in over 150 hours of volunteering. I will be in National Honor Society. I also won the regional competition for sports writing in my area and will be competing at the state level at the end of the month at Penn State. As for my nomination, I will most likely obtain a nomination from my state legislature. What else can I do to strengthen my resume? How important is going to the summer seminar and will it affect my chances of getting in if I go? What are my chances of getting in compared to other candidates? Are my chances of getting in realistic?
