As a lurker on this fine forum, I've noticed that one in every five to ten new threads is a "hi, I'm interested in the service academies, please let me know if you think that I can get in". As someone who just finished going through this process, I completely understand how you feel, and that every prospective candidate is nervous about whether or not they are competitive when compared to everyone else. That being said, I feel that a dedicated thread for all these questions and concerns would have two advantages: The first is that for those who want to know how they stack up, they can also conveniently see how other people have fared, and maybe some of their questions will already have been answered. The second is that we won't have 9000+ loose threads floating around about "is my SAT score high enough?" or "should I do more extracurriculars?" This is just my idea. I'm hoping someone else here agrees; if not then I'm perfectly content to let this thread just fade away into obscurity.
