hey everyone,
i going to be a junior and i want to get recruited by HPS for women lightweight rowing. i got few bad grades in 10th grade Spanish class. the grades are 2C's and 2D's. the school does not average the Spanish grades, but it will be show on my transript. i will be taking chinese 2 in the fall and i'm going to try to get all A's. my overall gpa at the end of my junior will be a 4.0 and my SAT would be above 2250. i'm also will be taking 4 SAT subject test and 8APs.

possible rank: 10/988

    No one can tell you about your chances re LL without your actual scores, GPA and ERG score at the time of recruiting. "WILL BE" is your hope, not a fact. Do the work and stay focused. Good luck

    Except in very rare cases, coaches don't recruit on goals and admissions doesn't evaluate applications based on expected grades. What someone hopes to achieve may or may not be realistic. In any case, there are enough recruits with strong athletic and academic credentials that it is unnecessary to consider those who are less qualified currently.

    Unless you are truly outstanding in another sport, such as a sprinter who runs a 10 second 100 meters interested in football, recent performance in your sport is what matters the most.

    Hopefully, you performance will match you expectations. Best of luck!
