Hi all! Like many of the others posting or lurking on these forums, I am curious as to what the other members of this community may think about my chances at USAFA (or anywhere else, if anyone has a strong opinion). Academics: 3.99 unweighted, 3.45 weighted [All A's except for one A- in Honors Chemistry] (According to the Washington Post I attend the 4th best high school in the state of Minnesota, this is corroborated by the fact that 4 students this year went to Stanford, 1 to Columbia, 2 to John Hopkins, etc. Think what you will as far as the competitiveness of my high school.) Freshman year: AP Bio, AP Human Geo, AP Macro, Honors English, Spanish II, Concert Orch, AP Calc AB Sophomore year: Honors Chemistry, APUSH, Honors English, Spanish IV, Symphony Orch, AP Calc BC, Chamber Orch, Jazz Band, AP Micro Science Olympiad (on a team that goes to Nationals each year) freshman year, to continue next year with a solid spot at Varsity or JV Scores: 5's on AP Bio, AP Human Geo, AP Macro, and AP Calc AB; waiting to hear on AP Chem, AP US History, AP Micro, and AP Calc BC; 34 on practice ACT Arts: Over 15 appearances with professional theatre companies, 20-30 performances/month for shows, 15 hours/week for rehearsals (not quite sure how to represent this on an application) 10 years of private piano lessons 7 years of private cello lessons 3 years of private voice lessons Church choir Ballet and other dance training (nothing extensive) Teen representative/performer with Minnesota Association for Childrens' Mental Health Co-coordinator of Teen Ivey pre-show (equivalent of the Tonys for Minnesota's professional theatre scene) Athletics: Just started sailing with a competitive C420 race team, will hopefully participate through my high school next year, however my high school does not recognize sailing as a sport since there are only 2 people from my school that participate in it (lol).
