Chance Me: USNA Asian applicant
I'm applying for USNA class of 2022 (oh my gahhh)
and I want to know if I have a good shot at getting in with my sh*tty as heck ACT scores/GPA. Thank you.
This last semester shot my gpa down from a 3.9 to a 3.89 (thanks AP comp sci) so I'm even more paranoid that I won't get in.
rank: 20/446 (top 5%)
ACT: math: 29 english: 32
course load for senior year: all APs (with two sciences) except for journalism.
I took ap physics 1, calc ab, comp, english with non-aps of spanish and journalism
won 1st/2nd place at state science fair in medicien/microbio (soph/junior)
recognized at internationals as an observer (woohoo intel ISEF)
editor in chief of my school newspaper
3-year varsity athlete
worked as a lifeguard/swim instructor (keep in mind though: it was 10 hours a week)
went to NASS (don't think this will help my chances but i loved it)
passed CFA (maxed 2 events but wow my running time sucked)
asian, first gen(this actually probably won't help me)
live in a non-competitive state (I pray to God senators will nominate me)
sister attends naval academy(don't think this will help either but)
am i missing anything?? um..
i think that's it.
edit: i just looked at other asian kids resumes for USNA and wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww let me just say tears are falling. do i still have a chance? thank u
