    Chances of getting in

    Alright, I screwed up in high school. My entire senior year, I got my act together and somehow managed to get a 2.9-3.2 GPA. I did BYU online courses and fixed all the grades that were previously failing.

    However, I was on the football team for two years (Freshman and Sophomore). I wasn't captain or anything but I did my part. The remaining years I took weight training and could later on almost lift twice my body weight. My 1 mile time was 6:00-6:30 minutes.

    I took the SAT Jun 2007. I got a total score of 1850. I got 600 in Reading (low I know), and a 670 in Math. It was my first time taking the SAT, I didn't study or anything.

    I plan to take a year or two of college to further boost my GPA while take the opportunity to take the SAT again.

    Say I pull off a high 3.0 in college, achieve a 650+ in Reading and 700 or so in Math on the SAT,  and my athletic abilities remain above average...what are my chances?

    Pretty decent.

    Also, you should find some leadership activities.

    I might not have explained myself that well in the last post.

    I meant, if I pulled off excellent grades in COMMUNITY college, then applied to the USAFA. Do you think that would work?

    Nobody but those on the admissions committee can give a final answer.  However, from previous rumors and published info, I think you have a respectable chance.  I cannot provide a Y/N answer, but my gut feeling is you will be considered competitive.
