I have seen on many posts that indicates that USNA will look at a school profile along with your GPA and ranking. Exactly what is in a school profile? I go to a school where they specifically set the IB program there to bring up the school's academic rating (at least it seems). Between the IB program and the rest of the school there really is a huge contrast in academics. The overall graduation rate still hovers in the 50's to low 60's and most grads go to technical/community colleges. All IB students attend 4 year colleges.
