I'm in a bit of a dilemma right now. I am currently a rising junior at an academically rigorous private school in the northeast. I never thought I would have the independence to survive at a boarding school until a few weeks ago, when I went to a boarding school for an academic program by myself. I want to play college tennis, and I think I have a good chance of doing so if I keep on playing a lot, so I'm looking for a boarding school with a very good tennis program that would maybe even let me play in the off-season. I have either two options: I could try to apply really late and repeat my sophomore year, or I could look into taking a PG year in a couple of years. What sounds like the smarter option, and what boarding schools would fit my needs in terms of tennis? I got a 182 on the PSAT as a sophomore and I have about a 87/88 unweighted average.
