<p>Just as the question implies, how good do you have to be to get a scholarship or a better chance to get into an Ivy League school. And also if I am so good what should I keep my GPA to?</p>
<p>Scholarship? You have to be really, really good. Like a one-in-a-million athlete (exaggerating, of course). To have a better chance? Sports probably don’t make that much of a difference. I know one guy whose brother got into Northwestern (I know, not Ivy League, but it’s still higher ranked than some Ivies) without any sports whatsoever.</p>
<p>They don’t give merit aid, do they?
Plenty of people get in without sports. I read that sports only really matter if they recruit you.</p>
