<p>I got 1770 on my SAT (570 Reading, 590 Math, 610 Writing). My scores are all over the place. I got 24 on my ACT (Math 27, Science 25, 24 English, 21 Reading). I am hoping that we will be getting some feedback from the NSA by at least the last half of February. I know we were suppose to send a copy of our SAT/ACT scores, but my SAT scores were just printed off the internet so I hope they accept it because it is technically not official. However, that is really all I could do...</p>
<p>I am a high school student applying for computer science. I live in the mid-western part of the US. Anyone know if you live in a small state like Utah or Idaho, will you have a better chance? I am an evil white male, so the whole minority thing won't really work for me. I also don't know how much computer programming experience you need? I have taken 3 AP classes and am currently in I.B. so I really can't take any decent computer program classes until college. I have a read a bit about Java and Python at the library and I know a lot about computer security, anyone think that will increase chance of being a finalists.
I am also an Eagle Scout and have done more than 100hrs of service, judging science fairs, helping out people in marathon, tutoring, and volunteering at the food bank. I have been in DECA, French Club, Fencing, Honors Society...not anything that sounds very good.
Well, I guess only about 15 people actually get the scholarship/job/internship, so I am just wondering if I even have a chance. Really hope I can at least be a semifinalist. What about the rest of you guys?</p>
