    How do you think I chance up?I'm currently a junior.I'm taking the SAT in May and June. If my SAT scores are good, how do you think I'll do?

    -3.3 GPA
    -Exactly in top third of class
    -4 years varsity wrestling (1 year as captain)
    -Eagle Scout
    -2 years of working at Chick Fil A
    -2 years JV football
    -Enrolled in all AP and Pre-ap classes except for math courses.

    And I also plan on joining the Corps of Cadets.

    Think you should aim for academic-admit. Your rank is NOT your friend, so study for that SAT and try the ACT also.
    Academic Admits

    Prime145, you need to show the Corps you are serious about wanting to join. Plan to attend the Spend the Night/Spend the Day with the Corps programs. Go to aggiecorps.org for more info. Under the admissions section of that page, they have a checklist for high school juniors and seniors on steps to take toward admission for those whose path to acceptance includes being part of the Corps of Cadets.

    I don't think it matters that you want to be in the corps anymore. I desperately wanted to be in the corps, attended programs, etc. and have better stats than you and didn't get accepted. Sorry.
