Currently I'm a junior in high school and am preparing to take the sat. I run cross country and track. I have a letter in cross country and academics. I have applied to join the national academic honor society. I have a 3.9 GPA and have taken multiple aps. I have also done charity work through united way and the salvation army. I need advice, I'm currently in the young republican club at my school and don't like it very much. Does dropping it make me less competitive for admission? Also I can't apply for the naval academy till April of this year according to the website, when should I seek and nomination and how do I obtain one?
