    what else can i do/improve to better my chances at getting into the Air Force Academy?

    hi people who have more knowledge than me.

    I'm trying to get into the usafa but i decied on this rather late about the begining of my junior year(this school year). since then i have joined Civil Air Patrol and am due for my first promotion next meating. i am also a freshmen mentor in our schools mentoring club and i plan on running for an office next year. i also submitted an aplication to the Big Brothers, Big Sisters foundation to become a BIG and i see no reason why i would be declined. i work twenty hours a week at a local resturant and have done so for almost a year and a half(i held two jobs at one point at another resturant but do not anylonger) i have served fifty-six hours and thrity-two minutes of community service through the Salvation army and i hope to serve more through the local animal shelter. i played baseball my freshmen year and plan on going out for track this year since i beleive i can make varisty in track. my grades are probably my weakest point i had only a 3.0 (unweighted) my freshmen year a 3.2(UW) my sophmore year and im looking at about a 3.4 (UW) this year. however i am, and always have been, in the hardest classes i can take in math, science and history and get grades of B,A,A respectively. i also have four teachers and my boss writing letters of recomendations for me. however i dont know if there is a limit to how many i am allowed to have or if there is a point where it just becomes redundant. i also plan on applying to take the summer seminar this summer.

    so my question is what are my chances at being accepted?

    what can i do to better those chances?

    where do i go from here?

    Contact your local ALO (liason officer for the academy).

    They should be able to give you better advice.
