He is finally done!! My son took the ACT 3 times and was able to bump at least one of each section with each test. His final superscores aren't too bad, now we will see what the academy thinks of his academics" English 32 Math 30 Reading 32 Science 31 His GPA is 3.61 in top 25th percentile in his class (nationally ranked high school) with completion of 9 AP Classes including Physics and Calculus. Received his letter stating he is an AP SCHOLAR. So, that part is done, he just submitted his CFA which isn't as strong as his academics. Dang if he didn't hurt his knee on Saturday during his last football game!! He then took the CFA on Monday. I emailed his AFA advisor who stated that if he "fails" a portion of the CFA they typically request a repeat CFA (So that answers a few questions I have heard on the forums, this doesn't sound like its rare but rather, its more common). His letters of recommendation are great. His ALO is very supportive, interview went very well. His activities are great with Presidential leadership of a club, involvement in many school events/volunteer. 3 Sport Athlete (not a great athlete, but he competes). DoDMERB fully qualified with no waivers and excellent eyeballs. His application due date is Nov 12, and he is finalizing his essays now. Just about done, what a long haul, I think he is a strong candidate.... now for the nomination applications and interviews. Those applications are all due within the next week.... What a long road, I want to thank all of the posters on here for the great advice and help through the process, it is greatly appreciated!
