    What`s your GPA?

    We really can`t give you a huge idea...there are so many variables that go into getting accepted. Your Math SAT score is a little low.

    A virtual crap shoot trying to chance you. As noted, your math, for a traditional candidate, is mediocre. Being from a highly competitive state could well impact your possibilities. Conversely, having a successfully commissioned sibling and USNA grad could well impact your possibilities. Another positive indicator is your CVW, altho I'd be cautious in placing too much weight on that. 50-50. Wish I could be more encouraging. The best news is you're still in the game.

    If you're a person of genuine faith, pray. God's grace is boundless.

    Keep us posted.

    Keep taking the SAT to get your math up. Reading is ok. Not great. But ok and shouldn't hurt too bad. But being that the Academy is heavy Math/Science, that weighs heavily. Other things we don't know like people said GPA, Rank, How many APs? Classes? Minority Status? Awards received etc. Does anyone know how much a sibling graduate weighs in?
