    - Your ACT/SAT scores are the easiest thing for you to change. - Be physically fit before coming here (be able to run 4 miles and meet the physical fitness test minimums) - Have as much fun as you can in high school because your freshmen year will have less freedom

    Do your flutter kicks. Have great memorization skills. You will get beat, but have fun with it. Don't let the cadre get to you, because they aren't going to be like that for a very long time. Pray for sophomore year.

    Before you get here, make sure you are in good athletic shape. Make sure you are ready for the huge commitment as well, deciding to attend this school isn't a decision you should take lightly.

    Get used to working on less sleep than you'd like, improve your speed at everything (without sacrificing quality), be prepared to deal with high levels of stress coming from multiple sources (military duties, academics, athletic duties, social obligations, etc.)

    Take hard classes in high school: the admissions panel would rather see a person apply with a 3.0 who took exclusively AP classes than a person with a 4.0 who took exclusively easy classes. Stay in good physical shape, and excel in a small number of extracurricular activities rather than be simply involved in a great many. Community service is also good to have. The most important thing to keep in mind is that the application process is long and arduous; many fewer people will not make it in on the first try than those who don't. Keep applying if you don't make it. That will show that you really are serious about attending the Academy.
