    If you do your research here, you will see my and other's posts that no one can chance anyone to the service academies:

    https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/discussion/comment/21693455/#Comment_21693455

    Continue to do your best athletically and academically, put together the best application you can, and let the chips fall where they may; that's all you or anyone can do. I'm sure you posted to get some encouragement, but nothing any stranger tells you about your chances is relevant as no one here can possibly know the competition in your district or what your chances are. You have good sports participation and ECs, and your academics are in range, but your SAT math score is low, so I would suggest working on that and re-taking the test you are most comfortable with as both your composite SAT and ACT scores are toward the lower end. USNA is primarily an engineering school, so you will want to show you can comfortably handle the math.

    I'm nervous that I did not do enough.
    If you feel you could do more, then do it. If not, why worry about it?

    I have already gotten into a few other schools, USNA is just my dream
    You may be able to do NROTC at one of the schools you've been accepted to and end up commissioning with the same rank as you would from USNA. You will need to demonstrate in your interviews that your dream is to serve as an officer in the Navy, not attend the Naval Academy. The route to becoming an officer doesn't matter to the Navy.

    Everything looks very good except your test scores in math. You don't break down your ACT composite but your math component should be at least 28-29.
