    Apply early and do your best. Play sports, be active in the community, keep your grades in tip top shop, obtain leadership roles in the clubs you're a part of. Try to make a difference. They care about a whole cadet not just one that is a gold academic egg or a D-1 athlete that doesn't have a 3.0 gpa.

Sports, jrotc, volunteering, national honor society, other clubs, church, work. They look at all those things. You don't have to do all of them but invlovement and maintaining good grades is a big part of it. Also make sure that you'e physically fit. Don't wait to train last minute.
