After being wait listed for the class of 2013 and not getting an appointment, my daughter has started her application for the class of 2014. She is enrolled in a top flight engineering program, NROTC, taking a pretty heavy load of classes including, Calc, Chem, Physics, NROTC classes etc. The question she had was about taking the ACT or SAT again. USNA application said to plan on taking it. Is this really necessary? While I guess there is always room for improvement, I thought they would be more interested in her first semester performance. Any thoughts?
