Hello, I am a high-school senior from Hawaii and I've only recently become interested in the service academies, but I'm very interested and have completed the PCQ and am in the process of filling out forms now. Some info about me: -GPA: 3.5; I've taken 3 AP classes over 3 years with A/B averages, other than that my school does not offer honors. -ACT composite: 29 (35 english, 25 math, 26 science, 31 reading) ** these results are from my junior year, I have been studying and am retaking the test next week, shooting for 30's all around. -Class rank: roughly #90/680 students; also from junior year (my lowest-performing year, previously was #50). -Extra-curricular: wrestling and judo in my 11th and 12th grades, lettered varsity for judo (there is no jv team); USSF soccer referee since 2007 (this has taken up almost every Saturday of my school year since I was 10, which explains my lack of involvement with other activities); Band since 6th grade (marching band, jazz band, concert band -- all of it, also taking up most of my free time). -Physical fitness: being on the judo and wrestling teams, I'm physically fit and consistently score average and above for the CFA, so I am not worried about that. -Medical: no long-term sickness or injuries since I've been alive, allergies included. -Community service: I've always considered refereeing soccer as my community service, which is apprx. 270 hours/year. -Class schedule now: AP Literature, Calculus I, Physics I, social studies, AVID, and French I. I may be missing information, but the only reason I joined this forum was to get some sort of collective answer on whether or not I should even try for military school. I am 100% set on a law enforcement career after a military career, so I believe I am of good moral character, and I've never had issues with work in school or outside of school, esp. law-related issues. My fear is that, though I may be above average for my school and area, I am not even close to qualified compared to everyone with stellar high-school records. I am comforted by the fact that, though I don't have as many extra-curriculars as others may have, I have focused and excelled at a smaller amount of them. Bottom line is: I'd like to have some advice on whether or not I should continue the application process. I am very intent on attending an academy, but I am worried that I am too late and too under-qualified to be accepted.
