Hello Everyone, and thanks for taking your time to read my post and help me out, because I could really use some of that right now. I'm currently a junior in high school, and like many others of this thread, my true dream is to attend USMMA. My father was a graduate of the 1981 class, and he has been a motivation of course, but the only thing is, while I am determined to do my best to make it in, I have doubts of how competitive I am. Here's some information. GPA - 3.3 Taking AP Calculus, took AP Physics (B+ avg) Have not taken SATs or ACTs yet, so I'm assuming scoring high will be VERY important. Class Rank - Top 50% Extra Circulars - Freshman Year - Played Football - Starting lineman, did not continue to to injury Junior - Running Track I also do martial arts, and I play a lot of music. Extensively, guitar and piano. Father is part of the alumni. Also I'm in great physical shape and believe I can score high on any physical examinations. That's pretty much the jist of it, I believe I have qualities not explained there that put me ahead. Although I can't change the past, from this day forward I am willing to do whatever it takes to further my chances. If at the end of the day I'm not good enough, so be it, but I sure as hell won't go down saying I didn't try my *** off. It is my true dream to attend the academy and if I don't get accepted out of high school I will also continue to apply the next few years in whatever school I alternatively go to. Anyways, what do you guys think? Anything that pops into your head as to what I can do to further my chances? Thanks Again! It means a lot.
