I know that no one can tell me if I will get accepted or not, I am hoping some of you can tell me how strong you think my application is though. I do not mind going to the prep school either so I would also like your thoughts on my application to both the prep school and WP. Also, please keep in mind I come from extenuating circumstances. I won't go into too much detail about it. I have been homeless twice, once being totally on my own. I had to pay around 350-600$/month to get by, plus going to high school. I have been bounced around to multiple high schools. One high school my freshmen year, three schools my Sophomore year, two my Junior year and one more my Senior year. I wont get into much more detail than that, you get the point. SAT: Have not received scores yet GPA: 3.133 Class rank: 258 out of 538(?) So top 48% (Actually pretty proud of that considering my circumstances) -National Guardsmen, graduated Basic Combat Training at Fort Sill, OK the summer of my Junior year. Shipping back out to 68W and Airborne training next month. (I will apply to WP when I return) About to be promoted to PFC. -PG and squad leader at BCT -Class president sophomore year -Church youth leader -Lettered in football and track -JV in basketball and cross country -Debate team, this was my first year in the program and I broke records at my school being the only one to ever make it to regionals. I became team captain and started teaching new members coming in, to compete next year. -DeMolay member -I won two awards this year, Cal Lowry Mustang Effort Award- “This award was created to honor teacher, coach and encourager Cal Lowry. Each year this award is given to one senior who has risen above his or her peers by demonstrating the qualities of outstanding spirit and Mustang Effort. The Cal Lowry winner might not be an athlete, or may not have played on any field or court, but this senior always demonstrates the best in himself or herself, and always brings out the best in others” This is the most prestigious award my school offers. The school faculty nominates and votes on the recipient in secret. The Phoenix Award- “500$ scholarship presented to students who have overcome hardships during their high school years to complete graduation.” I would love your thoughts on the strength of this application to WP and USMAPS. I appreciate all of the feedback!
