I'll leave it short and simple(as much as I can): Im a three sport athlete, Boys State graduate, and AP student who is also active in school leadership roles while also being a member of volunteering groups. My SAT english is in the 75 percentile of last years graduating class at USAFA and im retaking the test to fix silly mistakes in SAT math which isnt far outside the mid 50% range. I have taken AP european history, chemistry, basic biology, anatomy and physiology, two years of Spanish and plan on taking AP Stats and Calc along with a college biology class... From what i've seen, I might look like a decent candidate for a service academy butmy freshmen and sophomore year I didnt understand the importance of what I was doing. I screwed around and I fear that it might hurt me trying to get into a service academy. By the time applications to service academies are due, I can only raise my class rank by so much in my already really small class size. My freshmen year I got a D and a C or two. Sophomore year I followed with 2 more Cs. It wasnt until my Junior year that I got a 4.0 for the semester. I was 1 grade point away from a 4.14 even. My class size is only 50 or so kids and im worried I might barely be able to graze the top 10 by application due dates. The kids ahead of me are mostly remedial class takers and kids who scored triple digit SATs numbers. Will class rank and GPA hurt me and destroy my chances even though these numbers reflect a version of me I deeply regret ever allowing?? Thanks in advance!
