Hi, there everyone this is my first post actually. I'm from NYC, and i attend Stuyvesant high school, which is a pretty good school if I'm not mistaken. During my sophomore year, i was suspended twice. First time was for being in the same general area as someone when he stole another person's wallet, and the other time for riding the elevator with a forged pass.
But lately, I've finally decided on trying to attend West point. The problem is I'm not sure if they'll accept me. I'm a B+ student, (88 average), know some fairly influential people of my ethnicity, and volunteer frequently enough. How do I explain this to them, if they'll even give me a chance to do so?
