Your profile looks pretty good, and don’t worry too much about the D—you have good upward trajectory. I’d just recommend applying as a repeat sophomore, as almost all new juniors are athletic recruits. It’s also really hard to gain “momentum” (both socially and extracurricular-wise) as a new junior, as everyone is already quite settled in.


as a incoming Exeter student, i do not think you should worry too much about the D. you should probably get into at least one of the schools you applied to
