I am from the midwest and have played high school golf since the 9th grade. In my junior year I was the league's number two golfer, was named all district and competed very well in the juniors and state championship. My coaches told me that I should be able to play in the Big 8 or Big 10. However, just last week I got a very receptive call from an ivy league coach who said he thinks I can play right away and compete. The only problem is he just knows my gpa (3.7 weighted; 3.5 unweighted) and SAT score (1210). He didn't seem to think it would be a problem. I have only taken five honors courses and one AP class - no tests. My SAT-II scores are 620 (Math IC); Writing (580) and Physics (520). Although I am going to take them all again in October and November, I can't imagine that I'll score what I read most students on this board score. Do you think if the coach wants me bad enough I can get in with what I have so far? Please do not criticize me. I want honest opinions.

Try when you take them again in October and November to bring your scores up a little more if it's possible like SAT I to around 1350 and SAT II's to around 650. Coupled with your golf talent and the coach's help, this may get you in.

You can be recruited as an athlete. Last year, a senior who graduated from my school in New Jersey went to Harvard University on a football scholarship. He was a very mediocre student and his standardazied test scores were not any good too. But he was a star player in football, which got him in. So I think you should not have any problems if the coach wants you bad enough.
