I am a freshman at one of the top schools in my district. I am in three honors classes, and I signed up to be in 5 honors classes next year because french 3 is considered honors. I run cross country, and I am very involved in NJROTC. I just recieved the title of cadet of the year, and i am hoping i will be on staff next year. Also, i am planning on competing to go the leadership academy this summer. I just calculated my gpa, and it is a 4.25. I am thinking about starting a club for helping around the community. I am not quite sure what it will be focused on. Also, I am looking into joining class council, and then running for an office position next year. I am in French Club, and i am on almost all of the teams in NJROTC; exhibition drill, hopefully color gaurd, physical fitness, and orienteering. Regarding my physical fitness, i can run a mile in 6 minutes and 37 seconds during xc season, 67 curlups in one minute, and 50 pushups in 2 minutes. I know i need to improve pushups, but how else should i better improve my chances? I want to be a marine corpes officer.
