Hello, I an a junior in HS and USMA candidate. Looking to get an appointment to the military academy down the road... and I have been building myself and what I can use to make myself a competitive candidate. Anyways heres my question - I am in Tae Kwon Do martial arts and that is my sport that I do outside of school. I have been doing it for many years and I want to receive my black belt, which according to the Master, it will probably be October of this year (projected). It got me worried because I wanted to get mine before I get evaluated so I can put that as something I do, along with getting higher ranks in Civil air patrol. If anyone knows, when does the academy start evaluating people (assuming they are candidates already) and looking at their file and what they have to offer?
