Hi, I'm a Sophomore in High School and I have been looking into the Academy and I was wondering if I have a chance of getting accepted, understanding that I also need a nomination from Congress. I have a 3.85 GPA unweighted and 4.48 GPA weighted, and 20th in my class(of 530). I would like to enter through math/engineering and I will be taking Honors Pre-Calculus next year. At my school, I am in the Cross Country program on varsity (Sophomore year), along with varsity track and I will likely become team captain this coming year or next year. I am also in my school's band program and play the sousaphone (Tuba), and will be Section leader this year and next year for both Marching and Symphonic Band. Next year I plan to raise my GPA to a 3.9 and take more AP classes. I will also likely join my school's NHS (national honors society) next year, and hopefully participate also the year after. I am going to volunteer at both my Church and Library, likely around 100 hours this summer and more next school year. If any undergrad or alumni of the Academy could give me any advice going into my Junior year, or tell me my chances of gaining acceptance, I would appreciate it greatly.
