Hi I am only starting my sophomore year in high school and getting into West Point has always been my dream. My GPA for freshman year wasn't so great, only about a 3.2 but I know I could have done MUCH better. I will be having 2 honors and 2 AP classes going into next year so I can make up some points there. I was a team captain for my Freshman football team and it looks like I will be captain again for the JV. My goal was to get a fairly decent GPA(a 4.0) and get some help from the football program. I am not really concerned about my playing time or if I will start, I just want to get in and will give 4 solid years to the program if I get accepted. Does my low GPA as a freshman hurt my chances a lot, and what should my goals be to compete with the players trying to get into WP football? On a side note, my brother is attending his senior year in the Air Force Academy and my father served in the Korean Army before coming to America. I heard that having a family background in the armed forces may help and I am looking for all the help I can get. Thank you for your time.
