Going to retake ACT, SAT, and my physics exam again next year.
I am really interested in the Air Force Academy, my counselor thinks i may have a shot, but i think she is jus saying that to make me feel good. She claims my ec's will help, like my internships. I know my GPA hurts, as do my grades, have had 1 D (AP Computer Science.....), A's, B's, and C's...and i have been doing everything i can to bring up my grades.... like takin 9 classes in an 8 class school day..grades have been improving every year. and im korean... if that helps anything.
So what are my shots in the military academies? IF things dont work out... i think i will apply at some business school like Babson.....

Well, needless to say, the Academies are very tough to enter. You need the Congressional nomination, first off. Your SATs are in the lower end, and your ACTs are on the lower end, as well as your GPA.

If you have any connections to the USMA/AFA, then please state them.
