My son is a junior in HS, and has been doing club swimming for 8 years and has been doing great in HS swimming. He has been a minimum of 10 hours per week practicing all these years. He is a decent swimmer (Sectional cuts) and would definitely get a accepted to swim for D3 schools if he applies to regular BS/BA programs. I mentioned D3 schools here because I think D1 school would demand too much practice time especially with high demand practice hours like swimming so we don't want to go there since he wants to apply to BS/MD programs.
His GPA is good (4.25 and should be higher by the end of this year), SAT 1420 (need improvement), has community service, research, medical related volunteer, NHS, etc.
He does want to swim in college (at least the first 1-3 years and probably unrealistic as he gets into the Med program). How does the admission office look at him who wants to go for BS/MD and swim at the same time? Does expressing the desire to swim hurt or help him through the application process?
