Backstory on me: I am a sophomore in college. My high school grades were not good. I was ranked 49 out of a class of 71, but have since completely turned my life around. I am doing well in college and have a much stronger work ethic. I just filled out my prelim application for the Academy. my SAT score was a 1280. I was just wondering how long it would take to find out whether I am an official candidate or not. I didn't want to ask, but I was also wondering what my chances of becoming a candidate are. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
