I am currently a rising junior in the class of 2015 in CT. I am planning on taking the SATs in october. I am mostly a B+, A- student. I will have a decently rigorous junior year, 3 AP's and Honors Chem. ( APs are Econ, Lang, US history).
So far I am 6'0" and 144lbs. My erg scores are 7:12.1 2k and 1:57.7 20 min test which is pretty much like a 5k.I have been rowing for 3.5 years now. I was wondering how much I would need to drop in order to be able to row lw in college at either Penn or Dartmouth, my top D1 rowing schools. Would coaches want me to stay under 150lbs and compete lightweight at the junior level or should i go hw next year at 160lbs? Also, what are good scores for someone of my size?
My realistic goals are a sub 7 2k by winter and a 1:55 20 min by the end of the fall.
So far, the only national regatta I have gone to is Club Nationals, where we got 6th in the Junior B 8. Is that worth mentioning to coaches?
