Service Academy -USNA USMA USAFA USMMA - Will Test Scores and Determination Help Me?
I am a female going into my senior year and I have started my applications to all the service academies listed above. I have visited both usna and usma. Both are amazing institutions that i feel i would do well in. However usna definitely feels like home. I spent a week there for summer seminar and all I want to do is go back. I want to serve and continue to progress myself as both a person and leader. Usma also felt like a good fit but usna definitely was the one. How do I stand out within a competitive district where more than 75% of nomination applications are for usna? I have what I think to be a good act score(31) and have the drive/passion but I am concerned on paper I dont stand out. On the cfa particularly my numbers are just averagish. I am more of an endurance person verse speed and I can do pushups and sit ups all day long. Is there a way to show them this? Pullups are definitely a struggle too. I do as many as I can with bands everytime I walk into my room but it does not seem to be helping very much. I just cannot get over the bar on my own. Please give advice! I really want to do well in my interviews too. I know my liason for west point wanted short concise yes no answers while other reps I have talked to want me to expand upon my responses. How do I read these interviewers? Are there and preparations you would suggest? Also, is there anyway to show interest in the prep schools other than checking the box on the application? Thank you so much for your time. I really do want to do the best I can and follow the advice/directions both academies and you guys provide. :)
