Honestly can’t believe college choice I have because of sports..
Ranked around 35 of 380 in my class, have decent SATs (1440), absolutely no other ECs, go to a regular public high school, but I am good at a second tier sport. Not all state, and I’d say in the second tier in terms of talent (first tier have D1 opportunities). So I’m doing 2 over night visits to top LACs over next two weeks, and then will make my choice. Blows my mind as my dad is like you would have zero chance at these two schools without sports. But my dad says diversity hiring is a real (and published) initiative at his nyc bank, and tells me life really is a large part about reading the tea leaves and taking advantage of opportunities. My guidance counselor told me she’s never heard of my top choice, which is arguably the best lac in the country lol. So I will commit, watch the class valedictorian get rejected at every ivy (happened last year), and not look back. Actually feels good..69 replies
