so I am thinking of trying to get recruited as an athlete..

I am a good squash player I am not top ranked in my state but I am among the top 10

I dont like squash anymore and I am seriously thinking of stopping it since it has been more than 10 years playing and I would only use it as a hook

how easy is it to get recruited in harvard as an athlete?

What should I do? email the head coach for squash?

how good you have to be to get recruited as an athlete?

Is there any binding agreement that if I get in I would have to keep playing for the school or I can drop the sport when I get in?

    Go to www.gocrimson.com and fill out a recruiting form for squash. It's also wise to email the squash coach. However, it will probably come out that your heart is not in squash, and the coach will then have no reason to recruit you. Think about whether it's really fair of you to use squash as a hook i.e. the coach would be helping you to get into the school, and then turn around and not play next year--kind of jerky, don't you think?

    And no, there is no binding agreement that you would have to keep playing squash, but there's always karma. ;-)

    what state are you in?

    if you are not one of the top in your state for squash, dont bother. harvard squash is not the best but it's strong enough that they dont need to take anyone other than the very best players. the thing with squash is that its such a small team as it is and a lot of those players on the team will be returners. so basically how many spots do you think harvard has for squash recruits? not more than 4 or 5 i assure you
