I live in one of the most competitive districts in my state, if not the most competitive. For the Class of 2022, our district had 11 candidates nominated to USMA which is amazing, but I am worried about receiving a nomination. My extra circulars and sports are skyrocketing, whereas I lack in my academics (GPA) though I make up for it with my SAT/ACT. I was wondering if there was anything I could do to potentially help receive a nomination? I'm sure there are backdoor deals between rich millionaires and Congressmen, but even if small, it still takes away from my chances. Would it help if I interned for my Congressmen? Or if I reached out to my RC/FFR starting now about questions (many of which I could find on this forum), just to get my name out to them? I appreciate any and all replies.
