So I was not selected to attend NASS but was instead given a CVW, which I attended. The visit only made me want to go to NASS more, and since I was not selected I was wondering what areas of my application I need to improve. Academic: 35 ACT superscore (34 math 34 english 36 reading 34 science) 2090 SAT (730 CR, 660 M) (will take again, this was my first try) 222 PSAT (77 CR, 68 M) (likely National Merit Qualifier in my state) 4.2 W GPA 3.7 UW GPA School technically does not rank, but I would put myself between 20th-40th place out of 530 4 AP's this past year Athletic 3 years JV Swimming (so far) 2 years JV Water Polo 1 year V Water Polo (so far) 5x Gold Scholar Athlete 1x Silver Scholar Athlete Extracurricular member of school outdoor leadership program ( 26 picked by teachers out of c/o 530) member of and volunteer with National Honor Society math tutor with Mu Alpha Theta JV Basketball Manager Varsity Basketball Manager Volunteer with disabled children. Also attended 2013 Summer Leaders Experience at West Point. I know leadership is a bit of a weakness, I ran for but did not win NHS office, so I am still looking for something else to add in that category. Thanks!
