Hey, I'm currently a junior in High School and over the course of this summer I became interested in the Coast Guard Academy. If any of y'all have any pointers that you could give me, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Thanks for your help AuxNoob.Don't look for a club or activity just to pad your resume. Join a club that does something you like. Do athletics. Get leadership positions in those areas, and do well at it. Be a team player. That is what will get the attention of Admissions. Particular scores on tests are not a limiting factor.
Thank you Next Generation, I will do my best to achieve the steps you have stated above.Don't forget community service and having longevity in your summer/part-time school-year jobs. Demonstrate that you care about others and that you are responsible in more than just an academic setting. Seek not just participation but leadership roles in both of these areas. You can then provide the academy with additional strong letters of recommendation from supervisors who can speak to your character as well as your ability to work hard and be resourceful, qualities highly valued in the Coast Guard.
