Hey all, 5'5 130 lb girl here.
I recently started rowing, but I figure as a current junior it's definitely too late for recruitment. I'm like, really new, so I don't have a 2k time yet either. If I'm unrecruited, would crew as an EC still give a boost, given an otherwise strong application (top 2%, 1550+ SAT, leadership and awards for various EC's)? I'm short but pretty athletic; swam varsity in middle school and as a freshmen, but quit (still kept in shape and tbh got in way better shape running every morning and weightlifting at night), and from what I can gather, given the need for "promising" rowers, a swimming past and height can be boosts (no height here though
