Hi everybody, I’ve seen a thread similar to this, but I want to address my specific problem.
So I want to attend a United States service academy and they make it very clear on their websites that candidates should have an “exceptional class rank…” the big problem is that my class ranking sucks.
I go to a school with about 4,000 kids (900 in my grade) and I’m an in the top 15% of my class with a 4.9 weighted gpa and a 3.78 unweighted gpa. By the time I graduate, I would have completed 11 AP courses.
While I continue work on the things I can control, like my SAT scores, essays, character, and leadership, how detrimental will my class rank be to my overall package? Will this also raise red flags for admissions?
