I am glad that you are interested in USMA and a future career in the U.S. Army. Here is some advice I have about enhancing your file:
1. Take the SAT/ACT! I recommend taking both because then you will find out which test you are naturally more proficient at and then you can practice accordingly. You want to have an SAT or ACT score to send to West Point when the SLE file opens, which is usually in January. That being said, get moving...
2. Your GPA is already high. Take more challenging classes next year. USMA prefers that you challenge yourself and get a lower GPA than cruise through high school with a 4.0 or near 4.0. In other words, it's better to get a B in AP Calculus BC than an A in regular Calculus. That being said, make sure you take Calculus in general or the highest level of mathematics available to you...USMA is STEM-heavy. This doesn't mean you should be filling up your plate so much with challenging classes that you're taking bites larger than you should chew. You simply need to challenge yourself academically while continuing to shine in your extracurriculars.
1. Club president is something that USMA looks for, so it's outstanding that you're already in this position. Join NHS next year. That is also something that West Point likes to see. I understand that you are not currently a captain or letter winner of a sport. TRY to become a captain or a letter winner to boost your file! An overwhelming majority of students on USMA's class files are letter winners, and a slight majority are team captains. Wrestling and track work out well together because West Point likes you to participate in a strength-building sport as well as a sport that develops cardio endurance and agility.
2. Join speech and debate, theater, Model UN, yearbook staff, Beta club, or get a job as a Junior Counselor at a camp over the summer if you have the time. These are extra things that USMA asks about for the leadership portion of your file. You can do just one of these, all of them, or any combination. Any of them helps, though, even if it's just one of these.
3. Again, if you have time, do JROTC. It's not too late for that. Despite what some people will tell you, you don't HAVE to be a member of JROTC or an Eagle Scout to get into USMA! Being involved with either of those will boost your file, but you do not HAVE to do them!
SUMMER FILE ENHANCEMENTS
1. Apply to SLE when the portal opens. When I was applying, it opened mid-January, so go to the West Point website and check when it opens. Applying on the first day demonstrates interest and if your file is strong enough, it may capture someone's attention. I was actually rejected from SLE but have an LOA to USMA contingent on a nomination. If you don't get into their summer program, don't let that discourage you from applying to West Point! SLE files are judged considering academic scores at a much higher percentage than the school itself since SLE does not require a physical test, medical exam, or any kind of nomination to attend.
2. Apply to your Boys State program. While SLE is a fantastic opportunity that some of my friends cherish to this day, it gives you the same amount of credit on your West Point file as a visit to campus. It's impossible to re-create the Boys State experience, but you can always visit West Point later... Just plug "Boys State ______" with the blank being your state into Google and APPLY. Boys State means a lot to USMA--they even have their Boys and Girls state attendees on their class profiles. Boys State seminars are only a week long and add some points to your file. There are additional points for ourstanding Boys or Girls Staters who become Governor/Lt. Governor or receive the beloved Boys/Girls Nation scholarship. I went to Girls Nation and toured D.C. (I had never been there before) and shook hands with President Trump! It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
3. Apply to be a camp counselor later in the summer. Early July would be ideal since your Boys State program and SLE would already be finished by this date.
Try to plan your Boys State attendance around SLE, but if they occur at the same time, go to Boys State instead!!!
