Ok, I am bewildered at what our 'hook' is, other than this kid loves crew.
He is LD (dyslexic and ADHD), and one of those kids who paints an interesting profile. Award winning photographer, excels at building things (won the school record for a physics project on building a car with a rubber band and other set supplies), has been working since he was 13, first in an RC store that hired him - he didn't apply, they asked him to work for them - fixing RC stuff then moved into sales and outsold many full time workers at the holiday season, then asked, again, didn't apply, to intern at THE camera store for the professionals in our large city. I could go on...
Doesn't excel at academics. Yes, he could work harder.
As a mom, I don't know where to go in looking at colleges. We are in Texas. He liked U Arkansas and their engineering program, and I know they do well with LD kids, and he could get in, grade/test wise. BUT he would like to row.
University of Wisconsin, Purdue (club), University of Michigan are on the top of his list.
BUT, is this doable? Could he get in? Looking at stats, I would say no. Of course we will try....but I would appreciate ANY thoughts from those that have been there.
HELP!!! (and grateful thanks!)
