    but since people are more competent about service academies here, can you "chance" me?

    school - VERY competitive
    rank - top 25%
    gpa - 90 ish
    cfa - max everything but the run
    SAT - 2000ish
    EC's- outstanding, over 150 hours, track and tennis varsity
    NOMS - JROTC(definate), not sure about any others.

    *accepted to sls

    This is not Las Vegas - we are here to help you beat the odds, not take bets on your chances.

    1. If you really want to go to USMA then anything anyone on this site will not deter you from applying. Apply and find out and make sure you let us know if you get in.

    2. There are too many unknown variables for anyone to make an educated guess on your chances. I don't know what 90ish for your gpa or SAT of 2000ish means? What kind of courses have you taken?

    3. Unless you are good enough to be recruited then your athletics are weak.

    If you want to talk about something tangible - like what classes you should take your senior year, how you can improve yourself academically or athletically, how to get a nomination (see nomination forum), questions on the medical exam (see DoDMERB forum), what West Point is really like - then we can help you.

    Have you earned varsity letters?
    Will you be captain of one of the teams next year?
    Are you a member of NHS?
    Are you now or will you soon be an Eagle Scout?
    How competitive is your congressional district/state?
    Are you taking advanced/AP/IB classes if available at your school?

    There are many variables. None of us can handicap, but as already mentioned, we'll help the best we can.

    Good luck.
