I am new to the forum-I wanted to join because there seem to be an awful lot of knowledgable helpful people here and it seemed like an excellent resource. I am an official Naval Academy candidate. I got a 33 in both English and math, have a 3.95 (4.0 weighted scale) and am 2nd in my class. I participate in numerous extra-curriculars, including 3 varsity sports, speech and mock trial and have been class president twice. I am nervous about the appointment process as I feel that I lack a clear gauge of where I stand in terms of my chances of getting in. Hopefully this forum can help me learn more and calm my nerves, so I am very happy for its existence.
