I think I'm more in Brune's shoes...If I decide to row intercollegiate, I'll probably be a walk-on. My school's team, as I mentioned on another thread, Belen Crew (www.belencrew.com)
, is a relatively new team (6 1/2 years), but we have made excellent progress in Florida, and we have a fleet comparable to crews' fleets that have been established for over 30 years. Last year we got 4th at states, but we are certainly aiming to do even better this year. Regardless of whether or not I choose to do varsity rowing, I will definitely make an effort to row in at least one of the three different rowing options at Yale, if I get in (I'm still hoping!), of course.
