I'm a senior in high school (18F) and am in the process of applying to the USCGA, all I have left is to get my letters of recommendation in and submit my PFE scores. I am planning on applying for regular admissions to give myself more time to improve my test scores over the next few months. My score is currently around 140. Not great I know. I was wondering what score I could realistically shoot for in the next 3 months that would give me a good chance of an appointment. I am very strong on the academic and leadership side and I know that my obstacles are physical. SAT overall 1380, math 640, reading 740. GPA 4.1 (and climbing). Lots of sports and extracurriculars like Sea Cadets, Choir, Musical Theatre, and lots of honor societies. I am a strong girl, around 170 pounds, 5 '7, and a weightlifter/wrestler. My muscle makes me heavier. I eat healthily and am not fat but I definitely will need to improve my run, and to do so I need to lose weight. My pushups are very good and I score the most points from them, but my situps and run are pretty bad. So basically I'm the opposite of most girls because I do primarily strength training. If anyone has any tips or tricks to help improve situps and run, please let me know! I'm working on pushups and situps every day, but the run is somewhat intimidating for me. I am incredibly motivated and have decided the USCGA is 100% what I want to do, I'm all in! TYIA.
