Hi everyone, I'm currently a Junior and already opened my application and I will submit my nominations as soon as my 6th semester grades are released. But I had a question that's been really bugging me for the past few months. In my sophomore year, I received a F in AP Calculus BC. I took a lot of hard courses and thought I'd be able to handle all of them, but I guess I was wrong. This year I learned my lesson and I got a B in first and second semester in AP Statistics. In my senior year, next year, I am planning on taking Calculus again and motivated more than ever to get an A in that class. I will be previewing and studying over summer. In addition, I am taking a Physics Honors course at my local community college during summer. A few snippets of my extracurricular activities: - Attending Boys State - Hold officer positions for 2 clubs - ~100 volunteer hours (6 hours getting added each week) - Varsity Cross Country and Track and Field - 2 Varsity Letters - Qualified and competed at a national Cross Country race - 9 years of Kendo, currently 1 Dan. Placed 4th at a national kendo competition - 27 on ACT. 32 on Math and 27 on writing - Sidenote: my school does not rank. So my question: Will the F that I received in my sophomore year automatically take me out of the league? Do I have a chance to get into West Point? Thank you for reading all this and answering!
