Overall GPA or standardized test scores (ACT, SAT) in the USNA admissions process? More specifically what do they want more, a fairly high GPA and phenomenal test scores or a high GPA and average test scores? Im in the position where Im most likely going to end up with a 3.6 overall GPA. I just want to see if I could make the low GPA up with great test scores. And does the admissions board take in to effect the course load with GPA?
